Description: INFORMAP (Information Necessary for Optimum Resource Management and Protection) is a computerized system under development for storing, manipulating, retrieving, and displaying data for fire planning and fire control. A prototype for planning applications has been developed and tested. It is programed in Fortran IV for the IBM 7040 computer, and displays information in tabular, narrative, or graphic form. It uses card input of data and programs. Output, also requested by punchcards, is produced by highspeed line printers. Data are coded for input, and stored on magnetic tape.
