Range managers rely on GIS software and tools to plan training exercises. You use GIS to visualize, analyze, and then decide where to locate surface danger zones (SDZs) and ensure the safety of civilians and troops during training exercises. With GIS, you can:
- Provide quick, easy, and accurate depictions of SDZs.
- Ensure the safety of personnel during weapons training exercises.
- Create SDZ geometry based on several factors including weapons, ammunition, target media, and firing and target positions.
These stories show how defense and intelligence organizations use GIS for range management.
