ESRI’s MOLE Features Military Standard Symbology

June 27, 2005 - Redlands, California -ESRI is pleased to announce that the latest release of the Military Overlay Editor (MOLE) is capable of rendering Military Standard (MIL-STD) 2525B, the standard symbology for military mapping, from an Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.™ (OGC�) Simple Feature, Web Feature Service (WFS), or Geography Markup Language (GML). In addition, MIL-STD 2525B symbology can be rendered into an OGC Web Map Service (WMS).

“This reinforces ESRI’s commitment to open standards,” said David Swann, ESRI’s International Defense Solutions manager. “ESRI believes firmly in adopting open standards and has already undertaken this work as an internal investment-no government or system integrator funding was required. This is all the more notable since MOLE is available at no cost to ArcGIS users with current software maintenance agreements.”

MOLE is included as part of the ArcGIS Military Analyst extension, which provides support for standard war fighting symbology (point, line, and polygon); automatic leadering, stacking, and decluttering of symbols; and user customizable symbols.

Order of battle databases can be imported/located and displayed in accordance with MIL-STD 2525B, and corresponding symbols and attributes can be created and edited in MOLE. It also enables other applications, such as ArcIMS and ArcGIS Server, to take advantage of military symbology in creating custom applications. MOLE is supported on Windows® NT® 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP (Home Edition and Professional), and Sun™ Solaris™.

ESRI is a principal member of OGC and active in the organization by serving on its Board of Directors and Planning and Technical Committees. ESRI fully embraces OGC specifications and standards as well as comprehensive IT standards such as those related to ISO, W3C, ANSI, CEN, and many other leading de facto industry standards. ESRI's goal is to support appropriate specifications as they become finalized and to participate in the development of GIS standards.

“In short, ArcView, ArcEditor, or ArcInfo and is available only through the ArcGIS Military Analyst extension, which is available at no extra cost for users with current software maintenance agreements.
