Description: Technical report
Abstract: This report provides methods and procedures employed by U.S. Army Terrain Analysts to synthesize an LOC overlay from previously formatted military geographic information (MGI) thematic graphic data base (TGDB). Specific terrain factor overlays, such as Roads and Related Structures, Railroads, Airfields, etc. are taken one at a time and LOG-relevant data are traced onto a single frosted mylar overlay that, redrafted, becomes the final LOC document. By combining specific terrain factor overlay data from MGI TGDB, the analyst produces a topographic product suitable for expedient reproduction by Army topographic field elements.
