Abstract

Computer graphics is now a well-established part of computing and users of computer systems generally expect to find options available that will enable them to display output graphically. In many instances, graphics is essential if the data output from some computer programs is to be readily interpreted by the user. It is well known that information can be taken in by the observer at a much faster rate in pictorial form compared with the scanning of a table of numbers.
