GPS data with Dfirst technology for 100 daily datasets were used to predict the land management impacts during a 12 day military training exercise at Camp Atterbury in Indiana in July 2007. Off-road vegetative impacts were determined utilizing vehicle-terrain impact models. Quantity and location of off-road impacts were determined. Training areas with severe impacts were determined. This study shows the utility of using tactical GPS datasets to evaluate training area impacts.
