Abstract : The system described in this paper is a small microcomputer system being developed for the cataloging of graphical and nongraphical cartographic data describing the sources available and/or used in constructing maps and charts. The system is envisioned as a useful method to cartographic managers for reviewing sources belonging to an agency and determining what sources to use in a new or revised map product. (Author)
