Civil Works Technology Insertion, Phase 1

Technology Insertion Project. The CTI Project, sponsored by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), integrated multiple map servers, including nodes at the Corps' Mississippi Valley Division and the New Orleans District Office. Insertion Projects focus on expanding an organization’s interoperability capacity by laying the groundwork for open implementations.

Two different commercial map servers at the Corps' Mississippi Valley Division and the New Orleans District Office were updated to conform to the OpenGIS Web Map Server Interface Specification. Some of the information on these servers was then incorporated into a registry of online services available on the OGCNetwork (OGCN).

The CTI project leveraged a variety of standards-based commercial products that implement interfaces developed and tested during OGC Web Mapping Testbeds and the OGC Upper-Susquehanna-Lackawanna (USL) Pilot Project. The Web Mapping Testbeds formed the basis for the existing Web Mapping Specifications while the ERDC sponsored USL Pilot tested prototype online capabilities for multi-source geospatial discovery and visualization.
