Abstract:

This report describes the Geonames Processing System attributes and serves as a basis for understanding between the user and the developer. The subsystems referred to are Advanced Symbol Processing, Advanced Type Placement, Geographic Names Data Base, and Automated Alphanumeric Data Entry System AADES. The Automated Alphanumeric Data Entry System described in this volume will provide DMA with a means of high-volume geonames data entry from map sources. Source maps will include DMA map series and non-DMA maps foreign and domestic. Captured information will be stored in a sequential file to be merged with the Geographic Names Data Base GNDB. This file will include information on the geoname specific and generic components, if applicable, the position of the feature to which the name refers, the features designator or class, the source document, the country or countries the named feature is in, the features attributes, and the non-Romanized name if applicable.
