Geospatial Data – Maritime

SDI provides geospatial services in support of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s (NGA) Foundation GEOINT Maritime program. The objective is to produce and continuously maintain NGA’s Hydrographic Foundation Data, which includes digital products formatted to Vector Product Format (VPF), primarily Digital Nautical Chart (DNC) data. DNC coverage over the entire globe is in the form of Harbor, Approach, Coastal and General Libraries. Hydrographic Foundation Data is intended to support safety of navigation, maritime planning operations and intelligence activities on a worldwide basis. SDI performs additional Maritime related geospatial services, in support of NGA, which include New Library Collection (NLC) and New Source Incorporation (NSI) over numerous regions of the world. Work is performed within an ArcGIS platform and converted to VPF data.

Geospatial Data – Content Management

SDI provides geospatial services in support of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s (NGA) Foundation GEOINT Content Management program. SDI provides specification compliant data that supports the use of digital features for map production, to include tactical planning and operations for military missions, disaster support and preparation, and humanitarian operations. Processes include the feature extraction of point, line and area feature data from both government and commercially available imagery and cartographic sources. Resultant detailed data sets include: Vertical Obstructions (VO), Transportation, Hydrography, Power and Cultural feature layers created by conflating existing data sets and providing ‘gap fill’ by using onscreen digitization and feature attribution.
