Abstract : This report documents our current experience and understanding with respect to the design of the Object Oriented Vector Product Format prototype viewer/editor application for managing graphical primitive objects and operations while maintaining full spatial topology. This is an interim progress report within the Object-Oriented Database Exploitation Within the Global Geospatial Information and Services (GGlS) Data Warehouse project, sponsored by the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA). The goal of the overall project is to investigate, through research and prototyping efforts, the potential impact of object oriented technology on DMA's GGlS modernization program.
