DFAD Map Format / Digital Feature Analysis Data Map Format
This database consists of selected natural and manmade planimetric features classified as point,
line, or area features as a function of their size and composition. Each feature is assigned an identification
code and further described in terms of composition, height, length, and orientation. The data is stored in vector
format and segregated into 1 degree by 1 degree geographic cells. DFAD is collected from photogrammetric source material
and provides cultural information to support DTED terrain information. In general DFAD has now been replaced by the
VPF products. In most cases VMap0 is used.
MapLink Pro supports the import of DFAD data using MapLink Studio.
