Abstract : Orion I is a graphics system used to study applications of computer graphics -- especially interactive motion graphics -- in statistics. Orion I is the newest of a family of 'Prim' systems, whose most striking common feature is the use of real-time motion graphics to display three-dimensional scatterplots. Orion I differs from earlier Prim systems through the use of modern and relatively inexpensive raster graphics and microprocessor technology. It also delivers more computing power to its user; Orion I can perform more sophisticated realtime computations than were possible on previous such systems. We demonstrate some of Orion I's capabilities in our film: Exploring Data with Orion I. (Author)
