For the past several years, the U.S. Geological Survey has been installing many of its research files in computer-based data banks. One such program has been assigned the task of implementing computer-assisted mapping techniques in the updating of geologic index maps. The data files for these maps are designed to perform multiple functions, some of which are directly applicable to land-use planning and management. One purpose of this project is to provide selective display of index-map data, both text and graphic, interactively. Another aim is to assist the map designer who is concerned with the clear display of multi-level information. The program can furnish management with a tool for the assessment of present data and the practical future allocation of resources.
