Electronic equipment importer Sumisho Electric Systems Corp, a member of the Sumitomo family of companies, has taken on the Japanese distribution of the LAMPS computer mapping system from Laser Scan Laboratories Ltd of Cambridge, UK, where Imtec Group Plc is buying out the minority (CI No 889): LAMPS uses a laser beam to reduce the time to process complex data input such as free curves and building lot boundary lines; the system is configured with an input station with a large screen on which data can be expanded and automatic tracing is possible; an editing station; and an output station with facilities to produce print-ready maps and charts; plus associated software to run the system, which will go for over $100,000 in Japan.
