Station ID: RP-PSW-114

Description: Maps for wildland resource inventory and managament purposes typically show vegetation types, soils, and other areal information. For field work, maps must be large-scale. For safekeeping and compact storage, however, they can be reduced onto film, ready to be enlarged on demand by office viewers. By meeting certain simple requirements, film images are potential input to computer-mapping systems.

Key Words: wildland planning, maps, micrographics, computer mapping, digital techniques.
