Abstract

The system shown and described produces an out put film con- taming both graphics and alphanumeric data. Two types of data are processed separately and optically merged to com~ prise the output film; and the intermediate steps and pro- cesses are accomplished under the control of a computer which is further used to manipulate the alphanumeric data. The input medium is a microform, single images of which are pro- jected into a unit which produces both microform and location data which data is transmitted to the computer for storage; the location data and other input are further converted into computer generated microform images; finally, the two inter~ mediate films are juxtaposed to produce the desired output
