    Graphics standards status report



    Two status reports will be presented. The first report describes the activities of Working Group 2 (Computer Graphics) of the International Standards Organization Subcommittee on Programming Languages (ISO TC97/SC5/WG2). Actions taken in recent WG2 meetings in October, 1979, and June, 1980, will be covered. Significant proposals being examined by WG2 include GKS, a German-designed 2D graphics package derived from the SIGGRAPH GSPC Core System proposals, and Videotex, a Canadian-designed protocol text communication that includes geometrically coded picture images. The second status report describes the recent activities of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Technical Committee X3H3, Computer Graphics. This includes the committee status, international activities, key technical issues, and future plans.
