Abstract : The paper describes a fast procedure in processing hidden surface pictures with the output in vector form. The program has been written expressly for a Decsystem 10 and has performed successfully on three different installations. The algorithm which is being used is a modification to the Watkins' Algorithm. Consequently, the program has inherited many key features which provide for speed, compactness, and flexibility.
