Paper Abstract

Overview nowadays is a very urgent need for Interactive Computer Graphics (ICG) and thus is the major intention of this paper. Rather general means of classifying ICG applications and systems are the center of the discussion while it is avoided to go too far into details. This paper sketches benefits of Graphics and especially ICG in Data Processing. Features for classifying ICG applications and systems are outlined. Today's most important ICG application types and their characteristic demands on the features of ICG systems are described. Aspects of predicting the cost/benefit ratio for ICG application are touched. Types of Software Support for general and special ICG applications are briefly discussed including an attempt to predict the future situation of ICG application. Graphic system components of today and the near future are outlined and arranged in the previously defined system of classifying features. An attempt to outline trends in ICG system design is made with regard to user's requirements and trends in technology.
