Digital computers are being used extensively in acoustics research. An integral, but often unemphasized part of this research is effective and efficient man-computer communication, particularly in terms of computer-generated graphs and visual displays. This paper explores the many facets and philosophies of computer graphics as an irreplaceable link in man-computer communication. Numerous examples from the diverse areas of acoustics research are described to emphasize the wide range and varied aspects of computer graphics.
