DIDS: a de facto national atlas.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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
