Purpose. This manual provides detailed technical guidance and procedures for compliance with the policy in Engineer Regulation (ER) 1110-1-8156, Policies, Guidance, and Requirements for Geospatial Data and Systems, which establishes general criteria for the use and development of geospatial technologies throughout the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). This manual includes, but is not limited to, geospatial system development and utilization as well as the acquisition, processing, storage, distribution, and utilization of geospatial data and systems.
Applicability. This manual applies to all USACE Commands having civil works, military construction, and environmental restoration responsibilities. It specifically applies to functional areas having responsibility for regulatory investigations and studies, planning studies, real estate, emergency operations, and other functions that involve geospatial technologies and services for surveying (hydro and topo), mapping, Computer Aided Design and Building Information Modeling (CAD/BIM), remote sensing, database development, and modeling. It also applies to a variety of geospatial products, including river and harbor maps; navigation charts; inundation mapping; vulnerability and risk analysis; recreation and lake management activities; dredge site placement; real estate tract or parcel maps; engineering and construction drawings; survey reports; reconstruction, restoration and rehabilitation efforts; environmental stewardship; environmental studies; Hazardous, Toxic, and Radioactive Waste (HTRW) studies; shoreline studies; and channel condition reports.
