The prediction of patterns of maneuver disturbance on the landscape using military training doctrine is discussed. The methodology combins a military terrain analysis technique, modified combined obstacle overlay (MCOO), with an applied military tactics filter to predict where vehicle would be most likely. Since all terrain and tactical missions are different, modifications of tactics, techniques, and procedures by the tactician is considered necessary. Understanding the terrain from a tactician's viewpoint can aid land managers in identifying damaged areas for rehabilitation and improve on-the-ground data collection efforts to support impact analysis and computer simulation of maneuver exercises and their effects.
