  • Description:
    "The microcomputer system MTEN (Micro TENcol) is an extension of the computer system TENCOL (Terminal ENtry COmmand Language) developed by the National Geodetic Survey in 1975 for use by its mobil field parties. Since that time it has become necessary to have all data submitted to NGS to be in formats set forth in 'Input Formats and Specifications of the National Geodetic Survey Data Base', Volume I. To this end MTEN was developed to provide, not only NGS Field Parties but outside users as well, an intergrated system to perform the following functions: (1) Collect and store geodetic data at the survey site, (2) Then make geodetic computations with the stored data, and (3) Lastly, submit the geodetic data to NGS in the proper formats set forth in 'Input Formats and Specifications'. The microcomputer selected by NGS was the Columbia 1181 with the multi-user operating system MP/M II, a Digital Research acronym for Multi-Programming Montior Control Prgram for Microprocessors. The MTEN System configuration as planned by NGS for its field parties would be one hard disk, one or two floppy disks, two consoles and a printer. The information provided in this reference manual is broken up into six major areas. The first area which includes Sections 1 thru 4 explains the setup or how to initialize new project files, defines how MTEN Commands operate for the user, what files are required by the MTEN system, and how to input given or known initial geodetic data such as station names, positions, and elevations. Sections 5 thru 7 allows the user to enter all informational data observed or generated during the span of the survey. Area three, Sections 8 and 9 preforms all geodetic computations required in the execution of a given project or adjustment. Area four, Sections 10 and 11 describe the listings available from the data files and the final data sets generated at the conclusion of a project, i.e. the Horizontal Observation Data (HZTLOBS) and Horizontal Descriptive Data (HZTLDESC). Section 12, the fifth area, describes the method by which a user may list the MTEN files in case of difficulties. The last area of information provided the user is the Appendix"--Foreward.
