DEWDROP

The Digital Point Positioning Database (DPPDB), a stereo image based product developed by NIMA and introduced in the mid-1990s, consists of parametric support data, compressed reference graphics, and high resolution national imagery stereo pair sets covering a nominal 60 nautical mile (NM) by 60 NM area. It can be exploited on a stereo equipped digital imagery workstation using DEWDROP (NIMA-provided exploitation software) or RAINDROP and enables rapid readout of coordinates and associated accuracy.

The RainDrop mensuration software is a new digital geocoordinate point mensuration system which is used as replacement to the NIMA DEWDROP government developed [GOTS] software, which was retired in 1999.
