DIDS: a de facto national atlas.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


DIDS, the Decision Information Display System, is an interactive color graphics system for producing choropleth maps of social and economic statistical data. Its success as the forerunner of a digital National Atlas of the USA might well obviate a fully effective national atlas program. Needed improvements include a wider range of symbolization, the addition of earth science data, and procedures for the careful review of content and design.-Author
