Abstract:

This report documents the image generator function and author language software support for the CHARGE Interactive Graphics System. Designed initially for use in instructional systems, the CHARGE Interactive Graphics System can provide considerable and versatile graphic displays for many applications including equipment design, troubleshooting and mathematics. While being cost-competive, the CHARGE system can achieve color, gray level, three-dimensional 3-D perspectives, and rapid updating. Perspective views can be simply, rapidly, and economically generated from a 3-D xyz-coordinate, dynamically changing, real world description. This report describes from a functional viewpoint, the CHARGE systems procedure for representing a complex 3-dimensional world, forming a colored perspective view of this 3-dimensional world, and then encoding the perspective in a format for transmission to and display on a CHARGE terminal.
