Mapping And Map Maintenance Simple Methods That Work (1985)

By Paul D. Brooks, U.A. Cablesystems of Michigan

An introduction to maps and map maintenance for the technical and non-technical C.A.T.V. professional is presented based on experiences gained in the development of methods currently in use in a medium size cable system.

User groupings are presented and categories of maps are described. The production of one category, general purpose design maps, is expanded upon. Reproduction and distribution of these maps is discussed.

Map maintenance is an important and often overlooked aspect of a mapping system. A method is presented for ongoing information gathering and reporting, with techniques for maintaining the accuracy and currency of the maps. One follows a map through the stages from the need for a change in physical plant to the point at which an updated copy is distributed. Revision procedures are discussed, and an easy to use filing system is described.
