Abstract:

Ths work, referred to as the Geonames Processing System, will be conducted during FY82-FY89. A Comprehensive Coordination Plan NORDA Technical Note 189 was written in FY82 to provide a general system description. The Geonames Processing System Functional Design Specification, of which this is Volume 3, describes in more detail a proposed system based on requirements presented to NORDA by DMA headquarters and DMAs two production centers. A comprehensive system with simple and adaptable standard interfaces is described. This report states the functional, requirements and specifications of a digital type placement system for map names layout, to include names compilation, type composition, and label placement. Section 1 is a subsystem overview. Sections 2-9 discuss major functions. Section 10 shows processing flow. Data set usage is in Section 11 interfaces between the four geonames processing subsystems are in Section 12. Assumptions and constraints on which the design is based are in Section 13. Hardware and performance requirements are in Sections 14 and 15, respectively. Digital type placement will provide DMA with a softcopy method of type placement that exploits a digital Geonames Data Base and will integrate mapchart names overlay production into overall digital chart production.
