Plotters are surprisingly primitive in use and it will be found that a disproportionate amount of time is spent in making sure they run smoothly; in fact a number of installations have taken on a junior employee who does nothing else. Paper movement is one major problem. The plotter may for instance draw a grid line, then perhaps half an hour later come back and draw a wall line that lies along the grid, but because of paper movement appears a millimetre or two away from it. Precise control of temperature and humidity or the use of rather expensive plastic film will counter this.

This is because getting to a very precise position requires a series of minute 'nudges' of the joystick and it takes some time to acquire this skill. 36 Equipment Devices that are similar in principle to the joystick are the 'trackball' and 'thumbwheels'. A trackball is a ball fitted into a fixed base; as the user spins the ball in any direction, the cursor also moves. 10. 10 A trackball (courtesy Gresham Lion Ltd) Thumbwheels are a pair of small wheels set at right angles to each other with a portion of their rims uppermost.

12 A mouse (courtesy Spicers Ltd) Another free device is the 'tablet' or 'digitiser'. With this device a special pen containing an electronic coil is moved across a pad in which is embedded a grid of fine wires. The wires detect the impulses from the pen and pass back its position. A tablet is much more expensive than other forms of positional input but has several important advantages. One advantage is that it can be used to trace over existing maps, diagrams or drawings. This is not possible with a mouse due to wheel slippage.
