Abstract : A glossary has been compiled primarily for the benefit of photogrammetrists and computer scientists engaged in the development and use of semi-automatic and automatic digital mapping systems. Terms in the following categories are defined: (a) Terms with meanings in digital mapping that are different from the meanings of these terms in conventional non-digital photogrammetry; (b) Terms with meanings in digital mapping that are different from the usual meanings of these terms in related disciplines, e.g. in mathematics, computer science, engineering, physics, optics, electronics, and information display; (c) A limited number of terms, unfamiliar to photogrammetrists, that are used in digital mapping with the same meanings as in the aforesaid disciplines; and, (d) Special terms of the Digital Mapping System (DMS).
