Abstract:

Most writers of technical publications within the Defense Mapping Agency Aerospace Center DMAAC are scientists in the fields relating to mapping charting and geodesy. Their forte is in their respective field and rely on technical publications such as this publication to assist them in putting their scientific notations in a well organized, standard format. This technical publication was developed to provide the standard steps used by a technical writer in developing one of several types of technical publications paper, report, presentation, or article, helpful hints on the preparation of the information, the illustration of technical information, and the journalistic jargon used by the editor. Technical writing is not a specific function of the scientists at DMAAC. Technical publications are normally a result of the need to communicate with their peer scientists therefore, this reference publication was developed expressly for the DMAAC scientists and patterned to meet the requirements of DMAAC regulations instructions but in concert with American National Standard Institute ANSI on scientific and technical reports.
