    The advent of inexpensive, high-speed processing and storage has fueled interest in new ways to process and display 3D images. This new discipline of 3D imaging promises to produce a wealth of exciting applications in many fields. For three years, engineers at Linkoping University have experimented with algorithms and methods to display 3D images obtained from a variety of sources, including compu... View full abstract»

    During 1979, CERN began to evaluate how interactive computer graphics displays could aid the analysis of high-energy physics experiments at the new Super Proton Synchrotron collider. This work led to PIONS, a 3D graphics system, which features the ability to store and view hierarchical graphics structures in a directed-acyclic-graph database. It is possible to change the attributes of these struct... View full abstract»

    The architecture described in this article evolved from an extensive research and experimentation effort in man-machine interaction in the Informatics Division of RAL. Its primary goal is to support research into improving user interface design. The architecture is based on the concept of direct manipulation without time-sequential user-machine dialogues. That is, the user forms his plan of action... View full abstract»

    The compatiblility issues that are of concern through the graphics industry are particularly serious in the relationship of GKS, GKS-3D, and nowcomer PHICS. The point made in this article is that PHIGS can be brought more into line with the GKS standards, offering a broader range of applications to both sets of users. View full abstract»

    Implementers of graphical application sytems hesitate to interface their applications to the GKS standard not only because GKS functionality seems to be less suffcient for a particular application but also because the use of GKS-as it is offered in portable software implementions-uaually means a loss of system performance. This article describes an installation of GKS on a multi-microprocessor tha... View full abstract»

    A uniform and consistent way of filling degenerated shapes on a restergrid is presented. The processing algorithms described are based on contour segmentation of shapes along local minima and maxima (polysegments). To reduce errors, contour segments are scan convertedby considering their real parameters. A criterion is introduced to find discreate departure and arrival pixels as well as the initia...
