  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • COMPUTER GRAPHICS PRODUCTION AS A BUSINESS 

    Kaneko, Mitsuru (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • COMPUTER GRAPHICS FOR VISUALIZING SIMULATION RESULTS 

    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) ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • INTERACTIVE EDITING OF POLYGONS 

    Olsson, Lennart (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    This paper describes an internal data structure which can be used in interactive editing of polygons. A user can delete, restore, split and merge polygons and change type and direction of polygons. The polygons that are ...
  • 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 ...
  • GENERATING HIGH QUALITY PICTURES BY RAY-TRACING 

    BOUVILLE, C.; DUBOIS, J.L.; MARCHAL, I. (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    Ray-casting techniques provide a very general framework in which many problems can be solved in a much easier way than with conventional methods. This is particularly true for the illumination model when a high level of ...
  • NUMERICAL SIMULATION AND VIDEO DISPLAY OF DYNAMIC PROBLEMS 

    Janick, CARNET; Jacques, DUJARDIN (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    The increasing ability of computers to digest and regurgitate numerical results requires graphic displays which allow new and complex problems to be dealt with. In this paper we present software designed to study phenomena ...
  • COMPUTER GRAPHICS DEVELOPMENT IN EUROPE 

    Marechal, Guy; Matthys, Jan (The Eurographics Association, 1984)
    Europe is becoming aware that a political determination to collaborate is required, if it wants to attain the position it could claim on the basis of its research achievements. This is especially true in the field of ...
