GIS requirements for NATO C2 systems
Authors: Gerhard Joos
Geospatial Information and GIS functionality are undoubtedly important for military leaders in their decision making. Whereas in the past C2-systems only required background maps to place their operational assets into geospatial context, new information requirements go far beyond and demand high sophisticated geo-analytics and portrayal techniques.
This paper describes these requirements and how the NATO geo vision may be implemented to fulfil users’ requirements using standardized interfaces.
