Abstract: An advanced edit system with high resolution interactive graphic workstations and support software for editing digital cartographic and mapping data was developed for ETL to be used by Defense Mapping Agency Aerospace Center (DMAAC). The hardware consists of PDP-11/70 computer with two Intergraph Corp. dual screen workstations; one has vector storage tubes; the other workstation has a raster color display with 1024 by 1024 pixels. Conversion software programs were developed to convert AGDS Scan Data, CRT Printhead data, Gerber plot data, DLMS Culture and Terrain data, and RAPS data (various cartographic data base and plotter data instructions) into the Intergraph design file data format for display and editing. Additional programs convert the design file data back to the various data bases or plotter instructions. Numerous interactive graphic manipulation commands are provided as a starting point for developing special commands to move, delete, add, or copy features in a design file.
