Abstract:

A Cartographic Test Standard CTS, has been designed and fabricated for utilization in the RADC Experimental Cartographic Facility ECF. The CTS exists in two forms digital and graphical. The digital version is the original master standard from it the graphical standard was produced directly on a glass substrate using an extremely high accuracy of digital plotter, photoresist imaging, and etch-and-fill image fixing techniques. The CTS design was based on an analysis of both current and anticipated ECF hardware and software capabilities, chart finishing requirements of the Aeronautical Chart and Information Center ACIC, available technologies capable of test standard fabrication, and a variety of digital and graphical techniques for error determination. The function of the CTS is to test the resolution, repeatability, and accuracy of the complement of digitalgr phic equipments employed within the ECF. Author
