Abstract
The development of a real-time three-dimensional visual display for the Command and Control Workstation of the Future (CCWF) is a means of rapidly interpreting large amounts of important information. In this study, we examine the realistic versus real-time trade-offs required to achieve such a display and the components effecting these trade-offs, i.e., hidden surface technique, lighting and shading models, etc. We also present a unified data structure that is used in storing various properties that create the display.
