Abstract: This report briefly describes a computerized technique for transforming digital elevation data into gray-level-encoded film. This film is then used for near-real-time analog graphic (nondigital) processing for the display of terrain perspectives, profiles, and elevation layer tints. This report concludes that this approach offers considerable potential, at base and/or field levels, for producing special map graphics, displays, and analyzing terrain conditions for line-of-sight problems or nap-of-the earth flight plans.
