Abstract : The collection, maintenance, and distribution of geographic place names information at the Defense Mapping Agency is accomplished through the Foreign Place Names File, an index card data base. An attempt to automate the file is currently underway, starting with the development of a prototype Geographic Names Input Station. In the short term, the station will be integrated with the gazetteer production flow and will be used to enter, process, and display Roman script foreign text information. Its more important long-term role, however, will be to serve as a testbed for the development of an all digital Foreign Place Names Information System. (Author)
