Summary of No. 1/2012

VATRT, Viliam; VOJTÍŠKOVÁ, Marie. The influence of the mean sea surface over ocean on the global value of geopotential. Vojenský geografický obzor, 55, 2012, č. 1, p. 4–8.

New Earth Gravitational Model EGM08 was unveiled to the public in April 2008. On the above published theory, distortion ..W was computed over oceans, the model DNSC08 for hSST, geopotential model EGM08 and the altimetry data by Jason-1 were used. The geopotential W0 as well as the global sea level rise over the whole ocean and separated oceans (Pacif ic, Atlantic and Indian Oceans) has been computed for different years 2003–2009.

MARŠA, Jan. NATO Geospatial Information Framework (NGIF). Vojenský geografický obzor, 55, 2012, č. 1, p. 12–16.

The paper deals with extensive project NATO Geospatial Information Framework (NGIF) and its components. The aim of NGIF is to ensure common interoperability on NATO operations by specifying the framework of content, structure, organization and exploitation of geospatial information services. Short summary of up-to-date activities and future plans in the field of NGIF are pointed out.

MAŠLAŇ, Libor. NATO Geospatial Aeronautical Working Group – new NATO standardization working group. Vojenský geografický obzor, 55, 2012, č 1, p. 17–18.

In 2010 a new standardization working group NATO Geospatial Aeronautical Working Group (NGAWG) has been established. NGAWG solves an aeronautical information standardization issue. Other tasks are rationalization of the aeronautical charts and developing their symbols to meet user requirements.

BĚLKA, Luboš. Airborne laserscanning and production of the new elevation model in the Czech Republic. Vojenský geografický obzor, 55, 2012, č 1, p. 19–25.

The paper deals with a project of the new elevation models generation in the Czech Republic. The project is currently running within three government subjects collaboration (Ministry of Defence, Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping and Cadastre and Ministry of Agriculture). Airborne laserscanning has been chosen as a main data capture method. Basic parameters, a workflow, final products – two digital terrain models and digital surface model, their vertical accuracy and application possibilities are described in this paper.

TICHÝ, Boris. Revision of geospatial database DMÚ 25. Vojenský geografický obzor, 55, 2012, č 1, p. 26–28.

Situation in development of the largest geospatial database in the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic (DMÚ 25) from various points of view. Actual needs and possibilities solved in Military Geographic and Hydrometeorologic Office in Dobruška (VGHMÚř). Mentioned factors are current military-political situation, both international and national standardization, reduced VGHMÚř production capabilities.

MARTÍNEK, Jiří. The Central Data Storage VGHMÚř. Vojenský geografický obzor, 55, 2012, č 1, p. 29–31.

The article deals with the Central Data Storage of the Military Geographic and Hydrometeorologic Office and the reasons for its construction. It also deals with cooperation between the Engineers of CIS (Communication and Information systems) of the Office and the Section of CIS Military of Defence in designing, implementing and further developing of the Central Data Storage.
