Abstract : The Data Presentation System was developed to support the analysis activity carried on by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Analysis, Southeast Asia Programs Division. It provides a flexible capability for presenting processed data quickly in a variety of output forms for analysis and publication. The system interfaces with the NMCS (National Military Command System) Information Processing System (NIPS), retaining the full and powerful capability of NIPS, and provides a three dimensional facility for presenting data. Matrix reports are provided on the IBM 1403 Printer for detailed analysis. Management graphs are generated on the CALCOMP Plotter for a quick look analysis and publication. Geographic displays are prepared for CALCOMP plotting for a unique kind of analysis and publication. (Author)
