Abstract : The use of spatially referenced scientific and operational data has provided invaluable support to naval systems and resources. As a result of improved technology for gathering these data, both the quantity and quality of information collected have greatly increased over the years. The need for supporting multidisciplinary use of these databases has driven an ever-widening use of the technology available in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The GIS serves as a unique environment in which data can be fused to support a wide range of applications. More recent developments in the areas of network communications, distributed database architecture, and client-server functionality have served to dramatically expand these capabilities. Network software tools, like the World-Wide Web and MOSAIC access software, provide exciting catalysts to the affective implementation of GIS within Navy operations. The Naval Research Laboratory's Mapping Sciences Section, Code 7441, is conducting ongoing research in the Navy's development and use of GIS technology. A major component of this research is the examination of data accuracy and quality in relation to the integration of multisource spatial data sets. The identification and correction of errors and conflicts associated with the integration process is the primary focus of the SHOre-zone data RESolution (SHORES) research effort. SHORES also serves to develop an Integrated Master Database (lMD) inclusive of the Littoral Warfare Training Complex (LWTC) and Mid Atlantic Bight (MAB) regions of the Eastern United States. This document reports Code 7441's accomplishments in establishing a GIS-based Internet Mosaic Home Page environment to support the SHORES research effort. (AN)
