Abstract

Modern computer technology offers cartographers the potential for transition from conventional film-oriented methods to digital techniques as the way of mapping in the future. Traditional methods utilizing silver halide aerial and lithographic films for storage are time proven, and film is a very high density archival storage media. In view of this, proponents of the digital era recognize that a breakthrough in mass storage technology may be required to attain a reasonable degree of computerization of the cartographic mapping and data management process.
