Abstract:

The Graphic Information Presentation System GIPSY is a general purpose graphics and information display capability. It combines the tools of data retrieval, information processing, formatted reports, tabular, graphic, and geographic display into a single integrated on line interactive system. It is a file and data independent system that is driven by a high level user oriented language. The graphic display capabilities were implemented using a device independent approach which allows the single integrated system to support multiple dissimilar devices. GIPSY automatically reconfigures itself to the capabilities and unique requirements of the terminal to which the user is logged onto. The graphic display capabilities were the primary basis for the initiation of this system. However, GIPSY very effectively serves as an information handling system to connect the users data base to a large set of on line interactive query and display capabilities. This document provides a mid-level tutorial description of the capabilities of GIPSY.
