This volume reports the results of ESPRIT project 2463ARGOSI (Applications Related Graphics and OSI StandardsIntegration). The project ran from 1989 to 1992 and itsobjectives were to advance the state of the art in thetransfer of graphical information across internationalnetworks and to improve the quality of standards in thisarea. The results of the projectpresented in this bookinclude:- a classification scheme for applications in terms of theirrequirements for graphics and networking services;- an FTAM document type for CGM, which has been submittedfor international standardization;- contributions to the development of a mapping of the XWindows protocol onto an OSI stack;- contributions to the development of an ASI.1 notation forCGM and issues associated with the generation of CGMencodings for this;- experience of using CGM and FTAMfor a prototypeapplication running over public data networks.The book reports practical experience of an approach to thedesign and implementationof distributed applications usinggraphics and networking services in combination.

This book collects together several of the tutorials held at EUROGRAPHICS'89 in Hamburg. The conference was held under the motto "Integration, Visualisation, Interaction" and the tutorials reflect the conference theme. The Springer series EurographicSeminars with the volumes "Advances in Computer Graphics" regularly provides a professional update on current mainstream topics in the field. These publications give readers the opportunity to inform themselves thoroughly on the topics covered. The success of the series is mainly based on the expertise of the contributing authors, who are recognized professionals in their field. Starting out with one of the conference's main topics, the chapter "Visualization of Scientific Data" gives an overview of methods for displaying scientific results in an easily surveyable and comprehensible form. It presents algorithms and methods utilized to achieve visualization results in a form adequate for humans. User interfaces for such systems are also explored, and practical conclusions are drawn. The chapter "Color in Computer Graphics" describes the problems of manipulating and matching color in the real world. After some fundamental statements about color models and their relationships, the main emphasis is placed on the problem of objective color specification for computer graphics systems. It is very hard to match colors between devices such as scanners, printers and displays. Some suggestions on the effective use of color for graphics are also made.

The book addresses scientists and technical experts who have already some background knowledge in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and who want to know more about standardisation in GIS, in particular, the role of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). In addition, the monograph meets the needs of programmers who are involved in implementing ISO 19100 standards and who need a better understanding of the overall structure of the standards. Last, but not least, this richly illustrated book helps readers to better understand the rather abstract ISO documents.

The protocols and standards for networking are numerous and complex. Multivendor internetworking, crucial to present day users, requires a grasp of these protocols and standards. Data and Computer Communications: Networking and Internetworking, a comprehensive text/reference, brings clarity to all of the complex issues involved in networking activity, providing excellent instruction for students and an indispensable reference for practitioners. This systematic work answers a vast array of questions about overall network architecture, design, protocols, and deployment issues. It offers a practical, thorough treatment of the applied concepts of data and computer communication systems, including signaling basics, transmission of digital signals, and layered architecture. The book features in-depth discussions of integrated digital networks, integrated services digital networks, and high-speed networks, including currently evolving technologies, such as ATM switching, and their applications in multimedia technology. It also presents the state-of-the-art in Internet technology, its services, and implementations. The balance of old and new networking technologies presents an appealing set of topics for both undergraduate students and computer and networking professionals. This book presents all seven layers of OSI-based networks in great detail, covering services, functions, design issues, interfacing, and protocols. With its introduction to the basic concepts and practical aspects of the field, Data and Computer Communications: Networking and Internetworking helps you keep up with the rapidly growing and dominating computer networking technology.

In most manufacturing companies efforts to fully optimise the use of resources is only carried out within each functional unit. It is therefore difficult to achieve full optmisation, creating islands of automation with little knowledge or regard to the integration of the entire company. Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) optimisation presents a guided approach to the achievements of strategic objectives within a unified framework. This book enables investment in CIM and AMT (Advanced Manufacturing Technologies) to be considered in an effective and comprehensive manner, by setting out a methodology for the estimation of synergy amongst the constituent components of CIM. Key Features: * High level decision makers and manufacturing managers, researchers and postgraduates in manufacturing engineering will find this an invaluable guide * The only book on the subject that covers both CIM justification AND optimisation * Illustrates the mechanisms of CIM by comprehensively analysing the specific requirement

Documents, such as drawings, memos and specifications, form an essential function in the design and construction industry. Throughout the lifecycle of a built asset, starting from an initial design idea, right through to a final built form and its ongoing management, thousands, even millions of documents can be used to convey various forms of information to a range of interested parties. In many ways, therefore, the success of a design, or construction-based company, relies upon an understanding of the use of documents, as well as the technologies and techniques that are used to create them. The Digital Document provides an extensive background to the issues and technologies surrounding this very important topic. It examines a technical subject in an insightful manner that is neither intimidating nor confusing, even to the novice computer user. By introducing the subject through a series of preliminary reviews of current practices and essential computing technologies, the reader is able to better appreciate the benefits and capabilities of a wide range of digital document types. This book explores the role of documents in a professional practice, examines the components, capabilities, viability, and use of digital documents in the design and construction industry, and identifies and explains many of the standards in use today. In order to facilitate a better understanding of digital document technologies, a number of essential reviews are provided including: - the definition and purpose of a document - how documents are typically used by design professionals - the nature of the digital document environment - the data types which make up digital documents The Digital Document is an essential reference for the architect, engineer or design professional that wants to find out more about effective communication in the digital workplace. Bruce Duyshart is an IT Project Manager with Lend Lease Corporation and specialises in the development and implementation of digital media and information management technologies on design and construction projects. He holds a Masters degree in Architecture and is also an academic associate of the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne. He has written numerous papers on emerging technologies in the architecture, engineering and construction industry, and has developed Internet web sites for the Royal Australian Institute of Architects and Architecture Media.
