Abstract:

This report describes a system developed to edit cartographic data in a raster format. The Raster Edit System consists of interfaced PDP-9PDP-15 computers, disc storage, and 2 CRT devices. Cartographic manuscripts in digital raster form may be displayed on one CRT for selection of an area to be shown at increased scale on the other. The data displayed may then be examined and altered. The Raster Edit System can be used to great advantage to edit data in raster plotter format and to examine raster scanner data for quality. In the near future it is expected to be an important factor in the efficient use of the raster to lineal conversion process. Author
