STORING AND RETRIEVING LOCATIONAL DATA

This paper discusses a simple but original concept for storing and retrieving geographic data (geodata), and two packages, one in FORTRAN, the other in BASIC for minicomputers have been implemented. Each package was developed for machine independence, and is suitable for a whole range of applications using locational data for planning and design. The FORTRAN package is used for highway location studies and interpolating ground heights for highway design.
