The application of automatic cartography to engineering mapping functions is technically and economically possible today because of the recent development of compact, small, interactive computer graphic systems. This paper presents a brief description of the history of automatic cartography, and the description, general configuration, general use, and advantages of the available interactive computer graphic systems. Finally, the paper takes a look at the future trends of automatic cartography as applied to engineering mapping functions and their effective use on a total interactive graphic system for engineering design.
