DescriptionMaps contain information basic to land management planning. By transforming conventional map symbols into numbers which are punched into cards, the land manager can have a computer assemble and display information required for a specific job. He can let a computer select information from several maps, combine it with such nonmap data as treatment cost or benefit per acre, and prepare overlays and tabulations. The report describes specific and potential uses for the system and includes cost estimates.
