    Special session on large scale applications of computer charting and mapping in industry (Panel Session)

Abstract:


    1. It will demonstrate, with specific examples, the types of planning, justification, expense, and results that are part of the implementation of new computer graphics applications; and, 2. It will attempt to bring out the major barriers to implementation of computer graphics in large organizations and how those barriers may be overcome. The session is designed to help developers of the new advances in computer graphics software and hardware technology better understand the environments in which their tools will be used in order to optimize the use of the tools they develop. Too often developers of new tools have little opportunity to “get inside the heads” of the managers who will take these new tools and implement them. Through speakers and discussion, the session will draw together the experiences of people who have done the hard work necessary to estimate the costs and benefits and persuade top management that the project is worthwhile, to find the right hardware and software, and to train the staff to work with the new systems.
