INSTALLATION VISUALIZATION TOOL
MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORK CHARTER
Purpose. This document constitutes the charter for the Installation Visualization Tool (IVT)
2. IVT MISSION AND OBJECTIVES.
Background. From critical base closures and realignments to modernizing business practices
for real property accountability as well as homeland defense planning, senior leaders across
the Services and the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) need enhanced situational
awareness of the complex basing situation. The new DoD GeoBase initiative aims to
organize a single enterprise-wide defense installation spatial data infrastructure (DISDI)
enabling shared, efficient use of trusted georeferenced information delivering situational
awareness across defense installations and helping address DoD mission needs. The
Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics has deem d the
challenges faced by the Military Departments in meeting the 2005 Base Realignment and
Closure mandates can be better addressed through a capability known as the Installation
Visualization Tool (IVT). Furthermore, successful fielding of the IVT will serve as proof of
concept for the value of an imagery-based DISDI to help meet other DoD mission needs.
a. Impart enhanced awareness of defense basing situations through ready access to accurate
geospatial information necessary to support strategic decisions of defense installations and
their associated ranges.
b. Efficiently implement a "one installation, one map" capability providing accurate
geospatial information in a controlled manner from one official, approved source to satisfy
BRAC 2005 visualization needs.
c. Blend existing geospatial information resource investments across the Services to yield a
single, normalized view of defense installations through a federated management framework.
d. Offer an objective technology forum that allows all services to reach consensus on BRAC
2005 visualization requirements and capabilities meeting both OSD and the Services' needs.
e. Provide an official forum to shape interim policies endorsing sharing of BRAC 2005
defense installation geospatial data both within and beyond the defense sector.
