    NAKAMAE, Eihachiro; YAMASHITA, Hideo; NISHITA, Tomoyuki (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    Computer graphics techniques for visualizing the following simulation results are developed: (1) lighting designs for different type sources such as point sources, linear sources, area sources, and polyhedron sources, (2) ...
  • COMPUTER GRAPHICS PRODUCTION AS A BUSINESS 

    Kaneko, Mitsuru (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
  • BILEVEL DISPLAY SCREEN PRESENTATION OF TEXT, GRAPHICS AND IMAGES FOR PAGE MAKE-UP WORK 

    Sundblad, Yngve (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    Limitations in resolution of bilevel display screens and processing power of processors call for special considerations in the design of computerised tools for make-up of document and newspaper pages. Here we discuss and ...
  • HOW INTELLIGENT CAN BUSINESS GRAPHICS SOFTWARE BE? 

    Jones, Peter R. (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    This paper justifies the question posed in its title, by pointing out some of the reasons which make the use of a "quasi" automatic system necessary, when customized performances of the intelligence built in a business ...
  • GRAPHICAL SUPPORT IN A USER INTERFACE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM 

    Guest, Steve; Edmonds, Ernest (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    SYNICS2 is a User Interface Management System (UIMS) using the concept of Recursive Transition Networks (RTN) for its control structure. It is used as an intelligence terminal would be, being situated between the computer ...
  • AN APPROACH TO THE DESIGN OF HARDWARE CURVE GENERATORS FOR GRAPHIC DISPLAYS 

    Alia, G.; Martinelli, E.; Tani, N. (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    Special devices to generate curves are more and more convenient because of ever growing performance graphic tools are requested for. In this paper an approach to the design of fast hardware curve generators is proposed, ...
  • STEPS TO EFFECTIVE BUSINESS GRAPHICS 

    Macllroy, AI; Wyman, Peggy (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
  • DRAWING OF AN UNUSUAL KIND OF DIAGRAMS - NOMOGRAM DRAWING 

    Kjelldahl, Lars (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    Diagram drawing has traditionally been a major part of computer graphics applications. During the last few years we have seen new trends in this area. The quality of diagram drawing has increased and diagrams has been used ...
  • A TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLIPPING DIVIDER 

    MERIAUX, Michel (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    The clipping problem is the heart of a lot of algorithms to produce computer generated images. Sutherland and Hodgman proposed a reentrant clipping algorithm ; we propose here two solutions to achieve a true two-dimensional ...
  • IMPROVING COMPUTER GRAPHICS TOOLS FOR ARCHITECTS 

    Ekeberg, Oerjan; Engblom, Carl-Henrik; Kjelldahl, Lars; Lundequist, Jerker; Thörnblom, Ingvar (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    During the last ten years a lot of work has been done in architectural applications using computers and especially computer graphics. It is however obvious that these new tools have not been fully accepted by architects ...
  • THE COMPUTER GRAPHICS SCENE IN THE UNITED STATES 

    Badler, Norman I.; Carlbom, Ingrid (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    We briefly survey the major thrusts of computer graphics activities, examining trends and topics rather than offering a comprehensive survey of all that is happening. The directions of professional activities, hardware, ...
  • THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPUTER GRAPHICS CURRICULA FOR DESIGN EDUCATION 

    King, Robin G. (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    With the imminent availability of low cost, high resolution computer graphics systems suitable for visual and graphic arts applications, design education must now come to terms with radical changes in design methodology ...
  • SUDS - SUrface Description System 

    Moretonl, Henry P.; Bergeron, R. Daniel (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    A library of routines has been developed for the design of arbitrarily curved three-dimensional surfaces. The routines provide for the description and editing of surfaces. Surfaces are defined by families of parametric ...
  • EXPERIENCES WITH NEW IMAGE COMPONENT ALGORITHMS 

    Samet, Hanan; Tamminen, Markku (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    We present experiences and comparisons evaluating a fast algorithm for connected component labeling of quad- and octrees. The algorithm works without loss of efficiency on linear tree representations that may reside in ...
  • DIRECT CADD DRAWING (A Flexible Screen Oriented user interface to CADD) 

    Hudson, Fred W.; Jr., (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    Computer aided design/drafting (CADD) system developers are taking advantage of the latest developments in personal computing and human factors research by including icon (picture) driven, direct manipulation menus in a ...
  • TWO DISPLAY ALGORITHMS FOR OCTTREES 

    Oliver, M.A. (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    This paper deals with the problem of the fast display of a three dimensional object that is represented by an Octtree with the Octtree encoded as a simple linear structure without pointers. Two algorithms are described: ...
  • QUADTREE SCAN CONVERSION 

    Oliver, M.A.; King, T.R.; Wiseman, N.E. (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    An efficient method is described for turning a quadtree encoding of an image into scan lines. When implemented in hardware it becomes possible to generate video in real time for a raster display without the need for a ...
  • SHAPING THE FUTURE A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO MIS PLANNING 

    Kirkley, John L. (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
  • USER INTERFACE: CONCEPTS AND SPECIFICATIONS 

    Spliid, Axel Monrad; Sorgen, Amos (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    A CAD/CAM/CAE system may be very powerful, but its acceptance among a user group depends heavily on its User Interface. It is very important that the User Interface of such a system can easily be adapted to the engineer's ...
  • THE DESIGN OF A USER INTERFACE FOR A CAM APPLICATION 

    Sauter, Roland (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    This paper describes a user interface which has been designed for the rough environment of a workshop floor. It has a strictly hierarchical structure of the commands, but allows a lot of context-free operator's actions and ...
