Semi-Automated Mapping System (SAMS) for Resource Mapping and Data Management
Computer assistance can facilitate the construction of maps and the storage of map data used in the development and maintenance of a forest inventory. In a system being activated in Saskatchewan, Canada, map production, and establishment and maintenance of a resource information base for large areas, are expected to be achieved by combining aerotriangulation from low and high aerial photography with a sophisticated geographic data-base system. The data management requirements are area size measurement, updating, derivation of new maps, corridor analysis, generation of circles or grid cells, reclassification, merging or dissolving of forest type lines, scale change, and overlaying the data base.
