Abstract : This report presents an introduction to initial efforts in converting relational vector mapping data (Vector Product Format), produced and distributed by the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, into object oriented mapping data. From a single Vector Product Format implementation, this work continued to include four more Vector Product Format databases into object oriented framework. Discussion includes actual functionalities that were added, as well as results of having multiple Vector Product Format databases in object oriented framework. With the possibility of growing mapping databases, a search for an object oriented database management system was considered and evaluated.
