Abstract

Cave maps have always been valuable cave management tools. In the future they promise to be even more so. Computer-aided-design (CAD) is making it possible to include fare more than the traditional amount f information on the map. Resource inventory, surface developments, search and rescue information, and much more can be combined with the map to help make it a total cave management tool. The construction of such a map is now taking place at Wind Cave, Wind Cave National Park, SD.
