Abstract:

Video discs can store large quantities of analog map products in a compact, nonvolatile format. Interfacing them to microcomputers provides a portable, rugged means of accessing cartographic information. This new technology has many potential applications in map data storage, navigation, training, and decision making. The U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories USAETL is studying hardware, software, and map design aspects of video discs with a prototype Map Video Processing MVP system. Author
