Paper Abstract

This paper involves data structures in planning to combine engineering research areas considered as communication modes: image, outline-sketches, and speech. Images are enhanced compressed and transmitted, but in graphics solid display is central, while in speech recognition/identification dominate. Outside computing, graphics uses sketch, outline-drawing, or schematic summaries of other data (photographic images). Practical image-processing involves comparisons, features/edges, shape, and segmentation, using both transforms and other global analyses. Most speech work involves domain restriction. This limit can be deleted by focussing on data structures: they can link word and picture domains, and allow for captioning, for indexing/highlighting-domains to users. This shows data structures enable implementing useful functions, support information-handling with synergistic benefits: the paper's theme. Data structuring is also the theme of recent research literature on alternate means for visual presentation of multiple-measure numerical data. This paper briefly surveys these materials. We show how research from the data structure field enables new methods for addressing visualization issues, improves large-record data-handling, and aids greater use of visual and numerical records. (This expands on a talk presented 8 July 1994 at Argonne National Laboratory.)
