Topographic Company, 5 officers, 113 enlisted men. Reproduced maps in quantity in forward areas, distributed them to corps troops and to divisions, and established and extended the ground control required for coordination of field artillery fire. When aerial photographs were made available, corps-topographic companies used them to prepare photomaps and to revise existing maps. Initial requirements of the corps were met by the corps topographic company, which rapidly prepared and supplied map information, particularly the hasty type of map substitute.
