Abstract:To increase access to and use of the Spatial Data Transfer Standard (SDTS) as Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 173, the U.S. Geological Survey developed software tools that support implementation of the SDTS. The most significant tool is a library of C language functions that can be called by user application programs to read and write files compliant to FIPS 123, the standard used by the SDTS for its physical file implementation.

- Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is the official publication of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society. CaGIS supports research, education, and practices that improve the understanding, creation, analysis, and use of maps and geographic information. The society serves as a forum for the exchange of original concepts, techniques, approaches, and experiences by those who design, implement, and use geospatial technologies through the publication of authoritative articles and international papers. The role of the CaGIS journal is to facilitate these objectives by disseminating results and reports in these areas of interest.
Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is now being published by Taylor & Francis as of 2013. Please visit the Journal's website at www.tandfonline.com/tcag or contact email@example.com to subscribe and obtain online access.
