MAPPER is designed to provide a command language whereby non-programmers can produce report quality visual aids. The user can produce presentation and report quality slides, graphs, charts, tables, and maps in both color and black and white on Tektronix and DSCAN terminals and Tektronix plotters.
MAPPER can draw boxes, circles, ellipses, and complex line segments in a wide variety of line formats. There are six types of label commands and 12 to 15 lettering styles available to meet labeling requirements. Label options include manual sizing and location, two forms of automatic sizing and location, flexible string control, rotation, justification control, and multiple line capability. The user has choice of color control and selective shading of specific areas. Symbols may be defined, positioned, scaled, distorted, and shaded as specified. Axes, curves, and error bars may be drawn. Additional features include user-defined logos, skipping, multilevel projection ports, contouring, three types of file subroutine usage, and FORTRAN support capabilities.
MAPPER reads English language type command files that the user has generated executing each command as it is read. MAPPER acts as a FORTRAN front-end to the CA-DISSPLA graphics software product (see http://www.gaeinc.com).

The DEC VAX VMS version uses the FORTRAN77 CA-DISSPLA 11.0 library and can produce PostScript, Computer Graphics (CGM) and CA-DISPOP metafiles. The Cray version uses the CA-DISSPLA 10.0 library and device drivers and can produce CA-DISPOP metafiles.
