Demographic Mapping via Computer Graphics.
Banghart, Frank W.; And Others
A computerized system, developed at Florida State University, is designed to locate students and resources on a geographic network. Using addresses of resources and students as input, the system quickly and accurately locates the addresses on a grid and creates a map showing their distribution. This geographical distribution serves as an invaluable aid in planning and resource allocation, and can be used to determine the best transportation routes, facility sites, and redistricting plans. (Tables 3-4 and figures 2-4 may reproduce poorly because of marginal legibility.) (RA)
