Abstract : During the last year, DMA has focused on increased utilization of auto carto techniques and processes in production. Although significant auto carto capabilities have existed in the past, a combination of a balancing of production emphasis and software development is now providing increased automation in map and chart production. Discussed are developments in exploiting digital product data for maps and charts and the family of products concept. Applications of scale conversion through digital processes using existing repromat source for smaller scale maps are reviewed. New applications of auto carto scheduled for integration into production in the near future are also discussed. (Author)
