by

The U.S. Army Geospatial Center, formerly known as the Engineer Research and Development Center’s Topographic Engineering Center, became a major subordinate command center under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as of Oct. 1, the Army announced in a press release.

The change marks an expansion of the center’s mission to include support of Army Battle Command systems by facilitating dissemination of geospatial information to every level across the battle field environment, according to the release. The Alexandria, Va.-based center will also coordinate geospatial information requirements and standards across the Army and develop and field geospatial enterprise-enabled systems and capabilities to the Army and Department of Defense.
