A8.4. Digital Products.
A8.4.1. ARC Digitized Raster Graphics (ADRG). ADRG is a standard NIMA digital product designed to support applications that require a raster map background display. Paper maps and charts are converted into digital format by raster scanning and transforming the data into the Equal Arc- Sec-ond Raster Chart/ Map (ARC system frame of reference). Data collected from a single map/ chart series and scale are maintained as a worldwide seamless data base of raster graphic data, with each pixel having a distinct geographic location. NIMA has produced more than 4,500 CD- ROM titles with worldwide coverage of GNC, JNC, ONC, and TPC products. Extensive coverage of JOGs is pro-vided, and some coverage is provided of TLM 100s and TLM 50s, for high- interest areas.
A8.4.2. ARC Digital Raster Imagery (ADRI). ADRI is digital imagery produced to support vari-ous Air Force weapons and mission support systems. ADRI is currently produced from panchromatic SPOT commercial imagery which is orthorectified using NIMA DTED or other elevation data to remove terrain displacement and other distortions which may be present within the original source imagery. ADRI can be used as a digital map substitute, as a background display for command and control systems, as controlled imagery for draping during terrain visualization, and as a metric foun-dation for anchoring other spatial data in geographic information systems or to anchor more current imagery for interpretation. A joint requirement has been recognize, and is being documented, for abroad- area CIB.
Composite Data Geographic object composed of a raster product format frame (RPF) with vector product format (VPF) features located within the boundaries and text product format paragraphs whose indexes fall within the boundaries.
Raster Data A representation of Geospatial data characterized by a matrix of evenly spaced rows and columns of data points. These data points (Pixels) typi-cally represent some value at that point, while the position within the col-umns and rows determines the geographic position. Raster data structures are typically used to record scanned maps and charts, image data, or grided data.
Vector Data Data which represents each cartographic feature by an entity description (feature code) and a spatial extent (geographic position). Geographic posi-tion may be two- dimensional (horizontal position only) or three- dimen-sional (including elevation). Features are categorized as point, line, or area features. The position of a point feature is described by a string of coordi-nated of points lying along the line, while the extent of an area feature is described by treating its boundary as a line feature. Vector data may be stored in a sequential, a chain node, or a topological data structure. 186

A8.4.4. Controlled Image Base (CIB). CIB is unclassified digital imagery, produced to support mission planning and command, control, communications, and intelligence systems. CIB will be used as a map substitute for emergencies and crises in the event that maps do not exist or are outdated. CIB is panchromatic digital imagery and is produced from SPOT commercial imagery that has been orthonormalized using NIMA DTED. CIB is RPF and NITF compliant.
A8.4.5. Digital Feature Analysis Data (DFAD). DFAD is a standard NIMA product that supports radar return simulation, navigation and terrain obstruction studies. When combined with DTED, DFAD provides an off- line data base for use by weapon system flight simulators and other types of simulation, such as line of sight, obstruction, and perspective view development. It portrays major natural and man- made features on the Earth's surface; the features and associated attributes of which are generally of radar reflectance significance. Content is derived from both cartographic and photo-grammetric source material.
A8.4.6. Digital Chart of the World. A comprehensive 1: 1,000,000 scale vector base map of the world. It consist of cartographic, attribute and textual data stored on CD- ROM. The primary source for the data base is the NIMA's ONC series. This is the largest scale unclassified map series in exist-ence that provides consistent, continuous global coverage of essential base map features. The data base contains more than 1,500 megabytes of vector data and is organized into 17 thematic layers. The data includes major road and rail networks, major hydrologic drainage systems, major utility net-works, all major airports, elevation contours, coastlines international boundaries and populated places. The DCW also has an index of geographic names to aid in locating areas of interest.
A8.4.7. Digital Point Positioning Data Base (DPPDB). A new digital product produced by NIMA, replacing the hard copy Point Positioning Data Base product. The DPPDB provides the warfighter with a deployable data base, in a computer workstation environment from which latitude, longitude, and elevation can be quickly and accurately derived on digital image exploitation systems.
A8.4.8. Digital Terrain Elevation Data (DTED). DTED was originally developed in the 1970s to support aircraft radar simulation and prediction. DTED supports many applications, including line- of- sight analyses, terrain profiling, 3- D terrain visualization, mission planning/ rehearsal, and modeling and simulation. DTED is a standard NIMA product that provides medium resolution, quan-titative data in a digital format for military system applications that require terrain elevation. DTED Level 1 has a post spacing of 3 seconds or 100 meters. DTED Level 2 has a post spacing of 1 second or 30 meters.
A8.4.9. Vector Smart Map (VMAP). A collection of data bases that provide vector- based geo- spa-tial data at low, medium, or high resolution. These data are separated into nine thematic layers and are topologically structured. This product is designed to support geographical information system analy-sis and can be used for various situation/ map background displays. VMAP Level 0 contains the low- resolution feature and attribute content of ONC. VMAP Level 1 will contain the feature and attribute content similar to JOG scale. VMAP level 2 will have the feature and attribute content sim-ilar to TLM scale. VMAP is VPF and NITF compliant. 187
