Basic Information – NIMA Products Basic Information – NIMA Products and Services for Army Units and Services for Army Units The majority of mapping and imagery products products used by the Army are produced by NIMA. These products and services are primarily distributed by the Defense Logistics Agency. There is no charge to Military or DoD customers for these products. Mapping and Imagery products are ordered through supply channels per AR115-11. Some are provided direct to the user by NIMA. Additionally, a number of the products are available via the unclassified and classified web. This reference provides information about important services and products you may need. Unclassified - For Official Use Only Ordering NIMA Products NIMA products are ordered through Army supply channels. DLA also supports ordering online on their website Please note: there isn’t a robust tracking method for products ordered through the web page. An illustrated, detailed reference about ordering NIMA products is at under reference materials. A complete list of catalogs is on DLA’s website at: DLA’s softcopy version of all the catalogs is on CD: NIMA Ref. No. CATCDLIMDIS NSN 7644-01-478-4783. Some catalogs may be out of stock until the digital version is in place. Call Customer Service Office at 1-800-826-0342 for more information. Automatic Distribution This ensures new copies of products you select are sent to your unit each time they come out. To get on automatic distribution, make an initial order through unit central supply for the complete set of the needed products. Units that deploy frequently should be on automatic distribution directly, rather than having their products sent to their higher headquarters. These products can be ordered by the NIMA numbers rather than the NSN. Instead of using A0A as your document identifier code, use A0D (A)D-requisition for domestic (CONUS) shipment / with part number) or AO4 (A04- requisition for overseas (OCONUS) shipment / with part number. In this case the NIMA reference number (NRN) is the part. Rules for the document identifier code (DIC) can be found on the DLA mapping facility website at: More information on the rules can be viewed by clicking “DIC" on the menu. Automatic distribution will provide updates to a product, but not its initial issue, once the initial order is made, request automatic distribution requirements by FAX containing the unit DODACC number to DSN 695-6545 or commercial 804-279-6545. Download a sample form at: Note: this form can also be used to add or delete items or change the quantity of products on automatic distribution.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
