This field manual (FM) describes doctrine for topographic operations in support of the United States (US) Army's strategic, operational, and tactical missions.

The Army's strategic challenge is to prepare for the rise of a major military competitor who is both competent and capable. All topographic operations must rise to the challenges of providing topographic information to a battle commander so that the battle space can be visualized in time, space, and distance. This requires absolute fidelity and definition of the battle space for decision making and mission execution.

Appendix A contains an English-to-metric measurement conversion chart.
