Paper Abstract

This paper presents some of the reasons that a hybrid RA/VE file may yet be the most ideal type of data structure for use in the Automated Cartographic Systems. There will be a discussion of the various data acquisition techniques available today and the relative merits of each will be reviewed. The systems discussed will cover coherent as well as non-coherent scanning systems, manual digitizers and their place in todays production environment. The final output of the systems will be covered. The data manipulations which are required for producing a manuscript and the necessity to create a data base in a manageable form (whether it be pure vector or a hybrid file) are also addressed.
