The U.S. Army Geospatial Center’s (AGC) mission is to provide timely, accurate and relevant geospatial information, capabilities and domain expertise for Army Geospatial Enterprise implementation in support of unified land operations. The AGC was organized as a Major Subordinate Command (Center) under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on 1 October 2009 to support the Army's LandWarNet / Mission Command concepts, capabilities, and systems - facilitating dissemination of relevant geospatial information to every echelon throughout the dynamic battlefield environment.


AGC´s expertise encompasses terrain algorithms; design, development & deployment of systems for terrain reasoning & management; human, urban, and physical terrain data collection, production, management, analysis, & distribution; 2D & 3D terrain visualization research, systems and services; and global positioning and portable terrain systems & services.


AGC´s expertise encompasses the collection, use, storage, and distribution of aerial and satellite imagery and sensor data from electro-optical, hyperspectral, LIDAR, and other geo-sensors from the open and unclassified to the highly secured environments; hosting the Buckeye collection platform; and research into multi-sensor environments and analysis.


AGC´s expertise encompasses hydrological algorithms and decision aids; systems for hydro reasoning and management; ground, surface, and man-made hydrological data capture, production, management, analysis, & distribution; hydrological model visualization; electronic navigation; and water management systems.

Acquisition Support

AGC´s expertise encompasses the design, development, fielding, and home station support of terrain, hydrological, navigational, imagery, and command & control systems.

Enterprise Development

AGC is instrumental in the Army´s Geospatial Enterprise, the Army Geospatial Governance Board, standards and requirements for systems using geospatial information, and geospatial data formats and tools.

Civil Works

AGC is engaged in the management of various civil works projects, dam safety management, inland waterways navigation, and civilian disaster relief efforts both in the Continental US and outside of it.
