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 In general DFAD has now been replaced by the VPF products.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.
