HUNTSVILLE, Ala., November 18, 2014
Norwegian Armed Forces has awarded Intergraph a contract to produce unclassified topographical maps. Based on high resolution vector data produced through the Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP), the maps will cover different regions of the world. Intergraph will use Hexagon Geospatial software for the cartographic solution.
Supporting the Norwegian Military Geographic Service (FMGT), the 1:50,000 scale maps, named MGCP Derived Graphics (MDGs), will provide detailed terrain information to support military analysis and tactical use. The MDGs will display the characteristics of the battlefield, such as land use patterns, logistical infrastructure, canals, waterways, demographics and political boundaries.
“Intergraph is pleased to support Norwegian Armed Forces in this important project,” said Maximilian Weber, senior vice president, Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure, EMEA. “We look forward to providing updated geographic information to aid the Norwegian military in its mission.”
FMGT is the authority and manager of geographic information in the Norwegian Armed Forces. FMGT’s role is to provide, assure the quality of and distribute correct and updated geographic information and services to support Norwegian Armed Forces at home and abroad.
