Abstract : These tables present coordinates from which it is possible to generate 1377 different alphabetic and graphic characteris on either COM devices or on digital plotters. The tables, originally developed by Dr. A. V. Hershey of the Naval Weapons Laboratory, are augmented here by corresponding figures which show for each character the location of the tabulated points and the manner in which they are connected. The tables can be used with existing typographic systems to compose pages for scientific and mathematical publications of graphic arts quality either on COM devices or flat-bed plotters. Numerous applications are discussed and illustrated. The tables are also available on a magnetic tape in either BCD or ASCII format from the National Technical Information Service. (Author)
