About Mapping Customer Operations

Mapping Customer Operations (MCO) is responsible for the supply management of more than 150,000 National Stock Numbers in four federal supply classes--7641 (Aeronautical), 7642 (Hydrographic), 7643 (Topographic), and 7644 (Digital). We are the DLA lead for the Print on Demand (PoD) initiative for geospatial products and also offer printing services of unique products for our customers. All products are issued at no charge to the customer when ordered through DLA MCO, as we operate under appropriated funds. We ask that you order only products and quantities that you need. Products and descriptions include:

  • Aeronautical products display mapped features of the earth showing selected terrain, cultural and hydrographic features. Included is supplemental information for air navigation, pilotage and planning air operations.
  • Digital products consist of aeronautical, hydrographic and topographic products that have been replicated into CD-ROMs.
  • Hydrographic products show depths of water, nature and contours of bottom and coastlines, and tides and currents in a given sea or sea and land area.
  • Topographic products display vertical and horizontal positions of features in measurable form of locations, elevations, and extent of physical and cultural features.

DLA Distribution Mapping receives, stores, and ships many of the products managed by MCO. There are also nine forward presence DLA activities throughout the world to aid in timely deliveries to worldwide customers. Many are collocated with PoD facilities.

To receive products from MCO, you must have a valid Department of Defense Activity Address Code (DODAAC), Unit Identifier Code (UIC) or Federal Activity Address Code (FEDAAC), and a valid MCO Account on file within our database.

It is strongly suggested that you become familiar with the MCO ordering procedures before placing an order. It is also recommended that you order the DLA Map Catalog (CATCDNMCI NSN: 7644015433809) for available products. The online NIPR catalog is available for download on FEDMALL.
