MIL-T-89301 Revision A, February 28, 1995
1:50,000 SCALE TOPOGRAPHIC MAPS
Includes all amendments and changes through Notice 1, March 31, 2004
This general specification defines requirements for the Defense Mapping Agency's (DMA) 1:50,000 Scale Topographic Maps.
The purpose of this specification is to assure uniformity of treatment among all mapping and charting elements, primarily DMA and its contractors, engaged in a coordinated production and maintenance program for this product. Feature requirements are stated in terms of DMA's Feature Attribute Coding Standard (FACS), to maintain consistency between various production methods. The use of FACS in this specification is not intended to imply any external digital data coding standard used by DMA's Digital Production System (DPS). DPS is the primary intended, but not exclusive, method for production of this product at this time. The Digital Geographic Information Exchange Standard (DIGEST) Feature Attribute Coding Catalog (FACC), not FACS, is the approved coding standard for the exchange of digital geographic data, as well as the standard for DMA's Vector Product Format product line. FACC may be included in, or replace FACS in a future edition of this specification. Beneficial comments (recommendations, additions, deletions) and any pertinent data which may be of use in improving this document should be addressed to: Director, Defense Mapping Agency, ATTN: PR, MAIL STOP A-13, 8613 Lee Highway, Fairfax, VA 22031-2137 by using the Standardization Document Improvement Proposal (DD Form 1426) appearing at the end of this document or by letter.
This specification is UNCLASSIFIED. The security classification of the products generated by the use of this specification will be the lowest, category practicable. When it is necessary to assign a security classification to the product, it will be accomplished in accordance with established national security procedures.
