The tutorial will introduce the basic principles of image storage. image creation, and image display. Both hardware and software issues will be presented. as well as examples of existing systems and applications. The tutorial should help explain the capabilities, constraints, and difficulties inherent in using raster graphics software and hardware. For the novice, the tutorial should also provide valuable information for the selection and evaluation of graphics display systems.
