The basic requirements for combining imagery, graphic, and alphanumeric data into an operational system optimized for human needs are discussed. A data base system which contains all these data types is presented. Information display cells are defined and their use in handling images, graphics, and alphanumerics is explained. Scale, projection, overlay time, and multiple parameters are included in the complexity of the data base design and design constraints.
