Abstract : The NCAR graphics package consists of several graphics utilities and their supporting routines which are designed to provide a wide range of high-level graphics functions. Its capabilities range from simple contouring, labelling and smoothing of lines, through to vector and velocity field plotting and a mapping facility for any part of the Earth. This document describes the philosophy used in implementing the package at ARL, the mechanisms for using the package, and the capabilities of the routines currently implemented. It represents the current status of the package as at August 1987. Keywords: Computer graphics, Australia.
