AUTOMATED PLOTTING OF PHOTOGRAMMETRIC DATA

A computer aided system for automatically plotting planimetric and contour maps is described in detail including digitizing instructions and program listings. This is a batch system and no interactive graphics is involved. Basic hardware requirements are a digitizer, computer and an automated drafting machine. Preliminary results indicate a savings of at least 30% in the production of maps. Other benefits as a by-product from this system such as a digital terrain model is not quantified. (FHWA)
