#DEFAus18 Idea Pitch – Rethinking Maps

Tingting Luo has an idea

My idea is based on the use of maps as the basic tool to navigation. The evolution from basic hand drawn images to digitally generated maps using satellite and high resolution photography, with analytical tools has been significant. So does the material it is printed on. Working together with BMS in vehicles, and the traditional paper maps that hang in a CP. These maps provide the flexibility to the commander on the ground with its ease of access and re-use. It will improve decision making by giving more time to the commander to think rather than fumbling with the map. You can simply put it away in one motion. The next time you pull the map out, it will be just as you left it without issues of it being wet or torn or crumpled.
