Research, development, and applications in computer graphics have dramatically expanded in recent years. Because of decreasing prices, superior hardware is now being used and image quality is better than ever. Many people now require image-synthesis techniques and software for their applicaions. Moreover, the techniques of computer ani mation have become very popular. In this book, we present a wide range of applications of computer graphics. This book is a collection of 44 papers in various areas of computer graphics selected from papers presented at Graphics Interface '85. Graphics Interface '85, held from May 27 to 31 in Montreal, was the first truly international computer graphics conference in Canada. This year, for the first time, the conference was presented jointly by the Com puter Graphics Society and the Canadian Man-Computer Communications Society. This new arrangement gave the conference international scope. The conference was spon sored by the Department of Communications in Ottawa, the Department of Science and Technology in Quebec, Supply and Services Canada, the Natural Sciences and Engineer ing Research Council of Canada, Hydro-Quebec, the qAssociation Canadienne FranAlaise pour I' Avancement des Sciencesq, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corpora tion. Graphics Interface '85 was organized by q1'Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commercialesq of the University of Montreal. Over 100 papers were submitted to the conference , but 64 were selected by the inter national program committee for presentation. This book contains new expanded versions of the papers.The original major objection to the simple grid cell approach was the vast amount of computer storage required. In the very simple example shown in Fig. 1, the polygon, line and point shown could be represented by about 30 sets of x, y coordinates. Including attributes ... of about 185 x 185 km. The individual points or picture elements (pixels) represent an area of about 57 x 80 metres in the original data.
