Abstract : This report identifies the Army's requirements for terrain analysis, the Analysis Community, and for known and anticipated Army Systems and Programs. This volume is a set of specifications which incorporate the requirements determined as a result of this study. The intent of this volume is to provide to the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) a single, consolidated, set of specifications that will accommodate the majority of known and anticipated Army requirements. A brief explanation and rationale is provided for each data element required. These specifications provide the vehicle from which DMA and the Army can work toward a final production specification that is both producible by DMA and is capable of supporting Army requirements.
