Defence Geospatial Information Working Group


DGIWG produces two outputs, Documents and Registers.

Documents may be:

  • Standards and Implementation Profiles that define information components that may be used to describe elements of geospatial information in a military environment.
  • Technical Reports that provide support information and are a reporting mechanism to facilitate strategies.
  • Product Specifications developed by nations under multi-lateral co-production agreements based on DGIWG standards.
  • Handbooks and Guides provide instruction on implementation of standards and product specificaitons.
  • Road Maps documents that define future standardization activities and associated work plans.

  • Historical Documents, such as the Digital Geographic Information Exchange Standard (DIGEST), that are no longer maintained by DGIWG.
