Abstract : The study has accomplished research and development on the interfacing of displays to computer systems in support of a number of newly emerging display devices. The study has included the investigation of graphical display languages, data structures, and interaction with the display user. The work has been based upon the use of R and D facilities at NBS including the MOBIDIC-B time shared computer system and the newly constructed MAGIC II display terminal. The report includes as appendices supplementing reports on 'MAGIC II-Graphical Display Terminal Interfaced to a Digital Computer', 'GRAS-A Graphical Assembler for MAGIC II', and 'A Communication Controller for a Time Shared Computer Research Facility'.
