One of the fundamental tactical activities is maneuver, which is provided on the terrain. Maneuverability is mainly limited by terrain, its components and current conditions. Reliable geospatial information enables to support decision-making of commanders including manoeuvers planning. Geographic information systems allow modelling of an influence of the individual terrain components on movement of military vehicles depending on their technical and tactical characteristics. The quality of data sources and used models is necessary to consider in such as modelling. The Department of Military Geography and Meteorology at the University of Defence in Brno is focusing its research to this domain. The case study deals with verification of complex models of the Cross-Country Movement that were created using standard digital geographic data for typical vehicles being used in the Czech Army.
