By Joyce Martin and Doug CaldwellSeptember 21, 2020
The Army Geospatial Center announces the launch of the public version of the Army Geospatial Enterprise website.This site provides information about how Army organizations share location data in support of Global operations.The Army Geospatial Enterprise includes more than 100 Army systems, ranging from systems in the Command Post, or the place a military unit is commanded, to handheld mobile devices used by individual soldiers.It provides standard formats of shareable map data that improve location awareness for those who enable unified land operations, the cross-functional teams that move Army modernization forward, as well as our national and international partners, all with a shared understanding of their surroundings at times when it is most critical.“Those who make up the Army Geospatial Enterprise work behind the scenes to enhance the geospatial capabilities of Army systems, improving interoperability and efficiency while reducing development costs,” said Josh Delmonico, the manager that leads enterprise support. “The Army Geospatial Enterprise team doesn’t build Army systems; but it does makes them better.”The Army Geospatial Center (AGC) of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, was first charged with developing the Army Geospatial Enterprise Architecture in 2008. AGC provides support to the Army’s operational, acquisition, installation, and research and development communities and improves geospatial effectiveness through a continuous and rigorous process of innovation.“I would like for those interested in how the Army manages its location data to have a place where they could quickly learn about the AGE, its history, and get the latest news,” Delmonico said.
