Abstract : The report describes the concluding year of a two-year research effort on man/computer interaction using, as principal interface, a high-performance CRT screen for computer output and a typewriter-like keyboard for input to the medium-size CDC 3100 computer. A computer system (PROMENADE) for multivariate data analysis and pattern recognition, is described. The PROMENADE system is used to explore data using a number of manipulative, graphic and numeric programming subsystems that are linked together under a single executive program. Interactive interface between subsystems is as important as interactive interface between computer and user. Principal features of the system are convenience, flexibility, and on-line interaction. Facilities are available for keeping a record of the analysis, using the line printer, still and movie cameras, and the off-line plotting table. (Author)
