Army establishes Geospatial Center, expands focus

The Army Corps of Engineers’ Topographic Engineering Center has a new name: the U.S. Army Geospatial Center. It also has a new, expanded mission: to support the Army Battle Command System and integrate technologies and processes to give warfighters a geospatial common operational picture.

The change will facilitate the dissemination of geospatial information to all levels across the battlefield environment. The center will also coordinate, integrate, and synchronize geospatial information requirements and standards across the Army, and develop and field geospatial enterprise-enabled systems and capabilities to the Army and the Defense Department.
