Abstract : This report describes the computer programs which were written to provide (1) the conversion of digital data from a lineal format to a raster image format and (2) the capability to generate and place point symbols and alpha-numerics. Also included in the report are the results of a study which investigated the possibility of consolidating the existing Cartographic Digitizing Plotter (CDP) System and Experimental Compilation Console (ECC) System. The image conversion programs operate on the H635/645 computer at RADC and the placement programs on the PDP-9/PDP-15 computers. The consolidated CDP/ECC System would be implemented on the PDP-9.
