Spatial data is of crucial importance to situation awareness in the battlefield. As geo-located data from local sensors and global intelligence is gathered and made available, it becomes necessary to route, filter, analyze and present information for decision-making. GIS provides the most intuitive platform for manual/visual correlation of all the gathered information. Too often, presentation applications are tightly coupled with a GIS which limits their use of new GIS products as they emerge. This paper presents a technique for abstracting client applications from the underlying map display to accommodate the many different GIS applications used by military programs.
