the CADRG and ADRG formats, the primary map background file formats used in most automated command and control
systems. We can use our 15 terabytes of in-stock raster maps to create a seamless map over almost any area of the
world.” EVC is a leading source of geospatial data and large-scale maps from Africa, Central Asia, Middle East, and

CADRG is a compressed version of ADRG (ARC Digitized Raster Graphics). Both formats support various digital moving
map systems, mission planning, and C3I theater battle management. CADRG is a Raster Product Format and National
Imagery Transmission Format Standard (NITFS)-compliant. EVC also creates vector data that is compliant with all
existing military standards including VMAP2, FFD and UVMAP.
