    • 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 ...

      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 human body motions during standing up and sitting down from/to a chair are analyzed employing a minicomputer system equipped with a graphic tablet and CRT displays. A two-dimensional mathematical model of the human ...
    • 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 ...
    • F.I.R.S.T., A HIGH RESOLUTION RASTER SCAN DISPLAY SYSTEM FOR INTERACTIVE LAYOUT OF TEXT AND FIGURES 

      Röthlisberger, H.; Rakotomalala, J. (The Eurographics Association, 1980)
      F.I.R.S.T. (Fast Interactive Raster scan workSTation) is designed as a low cost high performance display for interactive applications. Low cost is achieved by using dynamic memories, and high performance implies a high ...
    • 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 ...
