The simulation of an infantry attack using geographical information systems
An infantry attack over a specific terrain is modeled. A stochastic method described in our previous study is used. In this model, the position of each soldier during the attack is approximately defined by a square [10 × 10 m] on the battlefield. Making use of the possibilities inherent in a three‐dimensional digital map, a visibility matrix is made up, i. e. the indication whether the enemy sees the soldier in a specific case is given.
