Todd Richmond was quoted in a story about future of Army training, including challenges in developing a massive “global terrain database” that includes not only land and sea, but air and outer space.
That mapping is well underway in some cases, said Richmond, who was speaking on a panel at the Combined Arms Center – Training (CAC-T) Training and Education 2025 Industry Forum.
“Pretty much the entire world, the land terrain, at least, will be mapped to 1- to 2-meter resolution within the next year or two,” he said. “Low resolution data is going to exist … but we also need higher resolution than that in certain areas and for certain needs. Where can we get away with low-res? How do we swap in high-res? These are all tricky problems.”
