The Role of Computer Graphics in Maritime Simulation
Computer graphics constitutes a very powerful and direct interface between a simulation system and its operator. The constraints imposed on a computer graphics system by the special demands of maritime simulation are not very severe. Motions are mostly slow, however, a multitude of display devices is necessary. Depending on the amount of realism wanted some special features for scene display can be realized. Special systems for radar and control-system simulation need only line graphics and standard techniques.
