    Towards Device-Independent Graphics Systems

Session/Category Title:   Potpourri Session




    A formalism for logical input devices is presented that opens the way to input device independent graphics systems combined with a high degree of flexibility to study and utilize the psychological differences of logical equivalent physical input devices.
