The report describes a technique for automatic generation of color-coded maps which define the amount of time required to construct a military airfield. The input data is a set of terrain factors in overlay form and the technique relies upon the use of the IDECS System Image Discrimination, Enhancement, Combination and Sampling of the Center for Research, Inc., University of Kansas. The color-coded map is generated by a PDP-1520 computer which reads the terrain factors which have been previously stored on the IDECS disc, and applies them to a model in memory which calculates the amount of time for the airfield construction on a point by point basis. The computer then sorts the output into preselected time intervals and writes them on a digital disc. The appropriate disc channels are then displayed via the IDECS on a color television monitor for viewing as a composite color map. Author
