Abstract:

RADC has implemented a Graphic Line Symbolization System GLSS on the Univac 1108 computer system located at the Defense Mapping Agency Aerospace Center DMAAC. The software accepts data in the DMAAC Lineal Input System format and creates symbolized line data for final color separation plotting. Symbols are applied according to Joint Operations Graphics JOG specifications. In addition to the lineal symbol capability, the GLSS is capable of creating a significant number of point symbols. The software is written in ASCII COBOL and Fortran 5 languages and requires approximately 40K words of memory for loading and execution of all functions. The software configuration is highly segmented into areas of job set-up, file input, job monitoring, symbol application control, symbol specification correlation, symbol application processes, line smoothing and data culling, job reporting, and file output.
