Common Database Builder

Finding Common Ground

The EPIC Ready™ CDB Builder is an innovative content creation tool that is transforming the way that the common database (CDB) can be used in training and operational environments. CDB Builder makes it easier for users to take advantage of CDB’s open-source geodatabase capabilities to support a variety of interoperable training, mission rehearsal, intelligence and simulation applications.

CDB Builder takes Open Geospatial Consortium (OGS) standard data—such as web maps, features or coverage areas, or geospatial data files—and rapidly reads and processes that data into CDB standard format. A “what you see is what you get” application, CDB Builder lets you preview the inserted data in 3-D before it’s created in CDB. If your application requires only geospatial visualization, CDB Builder includes an easy-to-use viewer that allows you to visualize the 3-D mapping data in real time without processing.

By creating a common operational picture for a worldwide synthetic environment, CDB significantly enhances command and control and training capabilities, while reducing development time and associated database development costs. As a valuable content creation tool, CDB Builder lets you get the most out of CDB’s advanced capabilities.

As the adoption of CDB expands in the military and worldwide, CDB Builder offers the ideal solution for organizations that want to take advantage of this powerful international data standard.
