Abstract : This report summarizes the findings of an effort accomplished by the Tri-Service CADD/GIS Technology Center's (Tri-Service Center's) Environmental Field Working Group (FWG) during fiscal year 1996 (FY96) to identify and review Environmental Restoration (ER) and Environmental Compliance (EC) initiatives using Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) and/or Geographic Information System (GIS) technology. The purpose of this effort was two-fold: (1) Minimize the duplication of effort, encourage communication, and facilitate the transfer of available information and knowledge concerning ER and EC activities between the various Department of Defense (DoD) organizations; and (2) Determine the extent that CADD, GIS, and other computerized technologies are used for accomplishing ER and EC activities, determine training needs, and determine methods for facilitating greater usage of this technology in the future.
