Paper Abstract

A method of producing stereoscopic pictures is described. A digital computer is used to project a line (defined by a series of points whose X, Y and Z coordinates are given) onto a plane from two different eye positions, corresponding to the right and left eyes. By means of an off-line XY plotter which can use either red or green ink, a stereoscopic representation may be obtained of any number of lines, by using suitable filters in front of each eye. This method has been found useful in studying detailed bathymetric and magnetic data from the deep ocean. If the data are sparse, it may be difficult to draw contours from the original data, and this method facilitates the interpretation by making more clear the presence of linear features when the eye position is correctly chosen. "One picture is worth a thousand numbers"
