Abstract:

A preliminary study of graphical display systems GDSs is presented. Cathode ray displays are described with considerable attention given to the methods of display generation. Input devices, including the light pen, Rand tablet, and the Lincoln wand among others, are discussed. The nature of local computing power needed for remote GDSs is presented. Software for GDSs, including suitable data structures, is described. Such languages and systems as APL, ASP, CORAL, and SKETCHPAD are presented in this regard. Several GDSs including DAC-1, GRAPHIC 1, and GRAPHIC 2 are described. Author
