TELEVISION DISPLAYS OF TOPOGRAPHIC MAPS

TELEVISION IS IDEALLY SUITED AS A COCKPIT DISPLAY DEVICE IN AIR NAVIGATION AND AS A REAL-TIME COMMUNICATION LINK IN A TOPOGRAPHIC DATA BANK. RESOLUTION AND GEOMETRIC FIDELITY ARE THE TWO CRITICAL FACTORS THAT MUST BE CONSIDERED IN THE DESIGN OF A TV SYSTEM FOR DISPLAYING TOPOGRAPHIC INFORMATION. EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES SHOWED THAT A DISPLAY SCALE OF 8 TV-LINES/MM. ON THE MAP SAMPLE WOULD BE NEEDED TO DISTINGUISH THE FINE DETAILS IN THE TV DISPLAY. ALTHOUGH THE GEOMETRIC DISTORTIONS IN A CONVENTIONAL TV SYSTEM MAY AMOUNT TO 7.4 TV LINES AT ONE SIGMA LEVEL, AN ACCURATE DISTORTION MAP OF THE DISPLAY CAN BE OBTAINED BY A PHOTOGRAMMETRIC CALIBRATION PROCEDURE. /AUTHOR/
