Many obstacles to creating productive graphicsa pplications have been removed or reduced. Significant effort is still required to make the following items available: • A variety of end-user-oriented graphics applications that require no additional programming. • A variety of display devices and systems varying widely in capability and price. • A variety of high-level graphics support packages for creating one's own applications. • A well-documented list of users who attest to productivity gains. • Documentation of solutions to many of the more complex problems in such as data base design and special effects. • Computer systems that offer special advantages to graphics applications, such as virtual storage, virtual machines, and response- oriented operating systems.
