Paper Abstract

A large part of computing is involved with transferring data in and out of the computer interface. Vast amounts of information are traditionally stored or designed to be interpreted visually by human operators. This information must be made acceptable to the computer by either coding it for binary input or by giving the computer a visual input device. A digitally controlled image detector is one approach to this problem. This paper presents a number of interesting applications which have been made successful through the use of a digital camera with computer control of the X-Y scanning of the image.
