Abstract:

Project 7090, OperationsIntelligence Techniques Experimentation, has as an objective the development of data processing techniques for effective applications of intelligence data. Because information derived from intelligence data is often positional, one way to derive information is to display the data over a map background. Although map data bases for the world have already been digitized, in order that a map background be effective in an operational environment, there must be a direct relationship between the amount and types of map feature data displayed, and the scale of the display. This report discusses the issues involved in creating custom data bases and provides documentation on the set of FORTRAN routines implemented for that purpose. Author
