Abstract : This patent application refers to a system for concomitant scenario topography with the aid of a digital computer such that a two dimensional or three dimensional map is produced and displayed which illustrates the combined effects, particularly geoenvironmental, of multiple, diverse criteria and factors relative to uniquely-referenced, uniform, small areas of a plane surface or the surface of a solid. The topography system employs plural interrelated tables, worksheets and mapping systems to receive, contain and apply various political, economic, scientific, and technical criteria and factors as attributes of a particular small area, and subsequently map the processed data. Each table includes at least one join field which links that table to at least one other table or worksheet. At least one worksheet includes capability for rapid, dynamic user interaction to facilitate generation of a myriad of actual or imagined scenarios.
