Abstract:The change from manual production of cartographic documents to more automated systems requires significant changes in the approach of the production organization. Two of the most significant are the structuring of a master digital cartographic database for the organization (together with its proper administration) and the development and utilization of a Cartographic Design Workstation (CDWS). This article addresses the first of these topics and provides an example of such database design for an operational production cartography organization.
