Abstract : The 1977 Innovative Modeling and Advanced Generation of Environments (IMAGE) Conference is the first conference specifically concerned with the imagery produced by computer generated visual systems relative to flight simulation. The purpose of the conference is to promote an exchange of information and inspire investigations into areas of needed flying training research. With the increasing number of real-time computer generated visual simulators in the field, it is necessary to expand communications among the user organizations and create a forum to present relevant issues. Pertinent topics include but are not limited to: efficient and effective modeling techniques; environmental data base design and structure; psychological determination of visual cue requirements; and software/hardware developments directly resulting in an expansion of image capability and/or utility.
