  • FAST COLOUR RASTER GRAPHICS USING AN ARRAY PROCESSOR 

    Walsby, Anthony M. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
    This paper shows how an array processor technique can be used as the basis of an animated (fast) colour raster display. It is amenable to expansion for more colours, greater speed and resolution, and large scale integration ...
  • 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 ...
  • GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND THE ODYSSEY PROJECT 

    Teicholz, E.; Nisen, B. (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 ...
  • C. G .A. L. 

    Comninos, Peter; Webster, Graeme (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
    C.G.A.L. stands for Computer Graphics and Animation Language, and as its name implies, it is a computer language especially designed to help the user produce still and animated pictures with a Digital Computer. The major ...
  • DRAW - A GRAPHICAL PROGRAM WITH THE ABILITY TO DRAW CHEMICAL FORMULAE 

    Bicknell, Keith (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
    DRAW is a program that allows the user to produce diagrams on the incremental plotter or other graphical display devices by means of simple instructions. Particular requirements for chemical formulae have been catered for, ...
  • COMPUTER GRAPHICS AND ARCHITECTURE 

    Rogers, Gary (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
    Because computer-generated architectural drawings derive from common data bases, they can be more useful than those drawn manually. Beyond viewing functions, other operations (such as financial, spatial, and thermal analyses) ...
  • MODELLING AND DISPLAY CONCEPTS IN A HIGH-LEVEL GRAPH I CS PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE 

    Mannhardt, Ch.; Schrack, G. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
    The definition, manipulation and display of graphical data in an applications program can occur at different levels if graphical data are viewed as a hierarchy of output primitives. This paper discusses concepts of how ...
  • INTERACTIVE COMPUTER GRAPHICS IN COMPUTER-AIDED DECISION ANALYSIS 

    Carpano, Marie-Jose; Leduc-Leballeur, Andre (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
    Two systems for computer-aided decision analysis are presented. In both of them the man-machine communication is achieved through graphical displays. The first one has been designed to facilitate interactive structural ...
  • A CAD - SYSTEM FOR INTERACTIVE GRAPHICAL HANDLING OF HIERARCHICAL BLOCK DIAGRAM INFORMATION 

    Leinemann, Klaus (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
    The CAD - system named GRIMBI is designed to support the functional modelling of large engineering systems. GRIMBI includes a data definition facility, to define model classes functionally and graphically. The data ...
  • COMPUTER GRAPHICS APPLIED TO HUMAN MOTION ANALYSIS AND BODY FORCE EVALUATION 

    Iwata, Kazuaki; Moriwaki, Toshimichi; Kawano, Tsuneo (The Eurographics Association, 1980)

  • THE GHOST-80 INTERACTIVE METAFILE 

    Prior, W.A.J.; Sutherland, R.J. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
    In an interactive graphics environment, a random-access metafile has advantages over the usual serial type. A description is given of the use of such an interactive metafile in the GHOST-80 graphics system, together with ...
  • OPTIMIZED SOFTWARE DISTRIBUTION IN SATELLITE GRAPHICS SYSTEMS 

    Cullmann, Norbert (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
    Interactive computer graphics requires satellite systems. The two software techniques used today with these systems ('fixed-function' and 'programmable satellite') showed to be unsatisfactory. This paper points out refined ...
