<tech: The author at work in the eighties>The Mapping and Geographic Service of the Armed Forces of Feniz is responsible for all matters related to military maps and charts, geodetic data, as well as geographic, hydrographic, nautical and aeronautical information (geo-information).

The regions to be covered by the geo-information are Feniz and such regions of Vexillium as defined by the requirements set up by the commanders and staffs.

Survey Platoon at workThe different branches of the service have to collect and verify or develop and produce, update, and supply the geo-information according to the said requirements.

Supply of geo-information is always effected "joint", i.e. across component borders.

Thus the service safeguards a reliable navigation and an effective conduct of operations.
