Abstract : This report provides programmer-level documentation which describes the FEED Software, structure, files, data, and procedures. The Georgia Institute of Technology Engineering Experiment Station is working with the U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories (ETL) to combine the existing capabilities of the FEED system with the elevation data algorithms and enhancements from the Digital Terrain Analysis Station to form a more generic, more machine-independent software system. Based on 16-bit minicomputer technology, this system will provide the Field Army with a capability for exploiting digital terrain elevation data and associated products by the first quarter of FY85. A follow-on capability in digital terrain elevation data products will be incorporated as part of the Terrain Analyst Work Station, which is also being developed by ETL and will take advantage of 32-bit minicomputer technology and the concept of devices-independent graphics. This report documents the existing FEED software, which is the starting point for the develop;ment work referred to above. The FEED software is currently available for the Data General family of minicomputers using Tektronix PLOT10 graphics commands.
