Paper Abstract

The National Guard Bureau (NGB) and the Naval Research Lab (NRL) have developed a Digital Mapping System (DMS) Portal System that currently connects over 360 geospatial data servers. The DMS Portal System is located at http://ngbcdmaps.gtri.gatech.edu and is being used by nationwide law enforcement (approximately 5000 users/month) to generate geospatial mapping solutions to satisfy broad requirements with no licensing required. This paper will highlight the current functionality of the DMS Portal System to allow many types of geospatial information (such as weather, conventional maps, imagery, plume model dispersions, etc.) to appear in a common environment regardless of how the information is originally stored. The DMS Portal System has substantial potential usage in the homeland defense arena as well as with conventional DoD/government and private sector users. Future directions for this cutting-edge technology will be outlined.
