Abstract : This report compares the environmental portion of the Tri-Service Spatial Data Standards (TSSDS) to the default data structure provided with Intergraph Corporation's Environmental Resource Management Application (ERMA) software. The purpose of this comparison was to evaluate the ability of the ERMA product to support the data structures, attributes, and domains required by the TSSDS. This report was prepared to provide guidance to Department of Defense personnel and their contractors who may be implementing the TSSDS and may be using the ERMA suite of products. The information in this report will be used by the Tri-Service Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD)/Geographic Information System (GIS) Technology Center to help determine areas for further development of the TSSDS, and it will be provided to Intergraph Corporation for use in developing a TSSDS-compliant ERMA package.
