EVALUATION OF AUTOMATIC CARTOGRAPHIC SYSTEMS FOR ENGINEERING MAPPING FUNCTIONS

The application of automatic cartography to engineering mapping functions is technically and economically possible today because of the recent development of compact, small, interactive computer graphic systems. This paper presents a brief description of the history of automatic cartography, and the description, general configuration, general use, and advantages of the available interactive computer graphic systems. Finally, the paper takes a look at the future trends of automatic cartography as applied to engineering mapping functions and their effective use on a total interactive graphic system for engineering design.
