Abstract:

The Automated Alphanumeric Data Entry System AADES will provide DMA with an integrated system for bulk input of geoname data from maps and hardcopy gazetteers. Maps used as input data sources will include DMA map series and non-DMA maps to generate a geonames file that will be input to the Geographic Names Data Base GNDB. This file will include information on the geoname, the position of the feature to which the name refers, the features designator or class, the source document, the country the named feature is in, the features attributes, and non-Romanized name. This report describes existing methods and systems that relates to teh AADES objectives and points out their respective deficiencies and strengths. The state of the art in specific hardware and software technology areas, such as automatic character and word recognition, scanners, A major objective of this report is to examine the functions that must be carried out in the AADES to produce the required geonames file from the input source material. Another objective is to present information that may be useful for comparing alternative hardware and software configurations or scenarios by identifying what the current state of the art can support and what capabilities must be developed.
