Notes

Abstract: This report includes a description of a set of topographic contouring computer programs which are operational on DOS-based personal computers. A discussion of the mathematical procedure used to generate the contour maps and a detailed User's Guide is included. The programs were developed so that columnar types of data, often generated by various database software packages, could be directly accessed and manipulated by users. These computer programs also provide for the inclusion of internal data discontinuity boundaries such as geologic faults or groundwater flow barriers. Contour drawing may also be excluded within selected zones. Following the generation of a contouring mesh, profiles (or cross-sections) may be drawn along any plan orientation. The output of the plots may either be sent to the video screen or to a variety of pen plotters.
