Abstract : The study describes the basic specifications for a Graphic Display System that is designed to handle two areas of application: (1) Use as a special-purpose device for the control of an Instrumentation System, and observation. (2) Use as a general purpose display device that is capable of defining reasonably complex structures which will be useful to a broad field of application programs. Existing systems are first surveyed, the basic concepts of Engineering graphics are studied, and specific Instrumentation display requirements are discussed. Finally, this information is used to derive the basic specification for a Visual Information Processor (VIP) that will satisfy the constraints. (Author)
