Some observations are made concerning the source and nature of shape parameters. It is then described how Bezier curve segments can be stitched together with G/sup 1/ or G/sup 2/ continuity, using geometric constructions. These constructions lead to the development of geometric constructions for quadratic G/sup 1/ and cubic G/sup 2/ Beta-splines. A geometrically continuous subclass of Catmull-Rom splines based on geometric continuity and possessing shape parameters is discussed.<>
