    • A PAINT PROGRAM FOR THE GRAPHIC ARTS IN PRINTING 

      Willis, P J (The Eurographics Association, 84)
      There is considerable scope for the application of computer techniques to help the graphic designer working with printed products, provided that pictures of high technical quality result. Described here is the product of ...
    • APPLICATION OF COMPUTER-GENERATED ANIMATION IN EUROPEAN SPACE RESEARCH 

      Kristiansen, E. (The Eurographics Association, 84)
      In space research, there is often a need to illustrate motion, such as a spacecraft's orbital motion and attitude manoeuvres. This paper presents various types of applications for computer generated animation in space ...
    • COMPUTER GRAPHICS IN MULTIPLE MICROPROCESSOR SYSTEM 

      Ae, Tadashi; Takahashi, Koichi; Chiba, Haruyoshi; Ito, Tsurumi (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      In this paper we propose a method to implement the moving patterns which are consecutively related in a small computer system. Suppose that the patterns are constructed of many block elements. A pattern is derived by the ...
    • Easy to Use Graph Drawing Procedures in ALGOL 68 

      Butland, S. D.; Butland, J. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      An ALGOL68 implementation of a comprehensive set of graph drawing procedures is described. The procedures are designed to enable scientists and engineers writing programs in ALGOL68 to produce a wide range of graphs with ...
    • THE DESIGN OF A GENERAL-PURPOSE COMMAND INTERPRETER FOR GRAPHICAL MAN-MACHINE COMMUNICATION TO BE BUILT ON TOP OF A GKS 

      Borufka, H.G.; Pfaff, G. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      A model of a general purpose graphical command interpreter (KI) is presented. It is based on the graphical kernel system (GKS) and provides the user with the most common set of commands for solving graphical problems in a ...
    • SGL - A GENERAL PURPOSE INTERACTIVE SYSTEM BUILT ON TOP OF A GKS IMPLEMENTATION 

      Cunha, J.D. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      This paper presents the description of an interactive graphics system built on top of a GKS level 4 implementation. The system architecture is based on the notion of Process and the mainemphasis has been devoted to design ...
    • TRIAL-AND-ERROR APPLICATIONS FOR INTERACTIVE DATA REPRESENTATION 

      Vincents, Bo (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      This paper examines the advantages available to planners and experimental theorists of using computers to visualise their theories by generating a multiplicity of graphs interactively. The paper focuses on statistical ...
    • CONSIDERATIONS ON EXTENSIONS OF INPUT FUNCTIONS BASED ON A GRAPHICAL KERNEL SYSTEM 

      Hillebrand, K.; Weiss, J. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      The German DIN-Proposal for Graphic Systems provides five classes of input types and three different methods of reading them. In this paper considerations are made on providing a much more powerful interface for the ...
    • SURFACE FITTING BY MEANS OF SPLINES 

      Brunet, P. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      Algoritms related with surface interpolation use either global interpolants or local methods. When dealing with irregularly distributed data points, the former are usually cumbersome whereas the later may present continuity ...
    • GENERATION OF COMPLEX 3D FINITE ELEMENT MESHES ON TURNKEY GRAPHIC SYSTEMS 

      Altimimi, K. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      This paper outlines a new approach to finite element mesh generation that has been developed at Perkins Engines on a Computervision CADDS III system. Unlike other finite element mesh generation packages, PEPFEM - G (Perkins ...
    • TOWARDS THE INTEGRATED INTERACTIVE SYSTEM 

      Newman, William (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      This paper describes the manner in which interactive systems can be expected to develop over the next few years, and discusses some of the implications for design methodology requirements. various influences are seen coming ...
    • GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND THE ODYSSEY PROJECT 

      Teicholz, E.; Nisen, B. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      There are numerous public and private agencies that are currently creating geographic (location specific) data. These agencies include the Census Bureau (County DIME, Urban Atlas, DIME files), the United States Geological ...
    • A Low-Cost, Interactive 2D Graphics Package 

      Ehlers, Bryan L. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      This paper is a proposal for a low-cost, 2 dimensional graphics design package. Its intent is to provide a naive computer-user with the essential tools of a sophisticated design station while emphasising friendly human-machine ...
    • APPLICATIONS OF AN INTERACTIVE VECTOR GRAPHICS SYSTEM TO CHEMISTRY 

      WEBER, J.; BERNARDINELLI, G.; COMBREMONT, J.J.; ROCH, M. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      This paper describes several applications to chemistry of a computer graphics equipment based on a mini-computer and an interactive vector graphics system. After a presentation of the hardware and software available, the ...
    • KISS - AN EXPERIMENT IN THE DESIGN OF IMAGE SYNTHESIS SYSTEMS 

      GRAVE, M. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      During the last years, raster graphics have become more and more important, and there is a need in developing a new generation of graphic systems. In this paper a first experiment designed as a "raster extension" to an ...
