Technical Report Number
This paper describes application software and programming tools designed for use with the Defense Mapping Agency's (DMA) Standard Linear Format (SLF) for Digital Cartographic Feature Data. The Standard Linear Format (SLF) is briefly described in this report. It was designed as a standard for the exchange of digital cartographic features on magnetic tape. The format specifies descriptive fields about feature data, as well as specifying the representation of the features. The application software described in this report can transfer files or tapes in this format to relational database maintained under Ingres, graph features in the database, alter the database, and convert the database back to the SLF. The subroutine library utilized by these application programs is also described. These subroutine should make the task of writing additional application software for the SLF much easier.
