Abstract:

A Data Handling System is described which handles on-site water quality survey data measured by the Army. Data and commands are entered into the system on-line via either the Teletype, Hewlett-Packard optical mark reader, Talos graphic digitizer, DEC manual data entry station, Yellow Springs S-C-T meter, or Fisher pHion meter. The digitizer, manual data entry station, specific conductivity instrumentation, and pH instrumentation are interfaced to the system via the DEC PDP-70 programmable data mover. The Data Handling System may be at a fixed location with a telephone data link andor may be found on-site. The Data Handling System may be viewed as a collection of programs which operate within the supervision of the OS8 executive on a DEC PDP-8E. Each of these programs operate in conjunction with data files found on the mass storage devices. An important feature of the OS8 software permits the user of the system to develop programs written in BASIC which can utilize the same data base generated by the data handling software. The OS8 is a software system which is supported by a large variety of hardware configurations with a DEC PDP-8E CPU. This system is a comprehensive library of system programs operating under the supervision of an integrated executive. A brief description of the OS8 executive is found in the OS8 System Section.
