Objectives and Approach

The project dealt with the development of sophisticated and advanced technology equipment, methods and software techniques, which make it possible to pick up, process and produce colour images well suited to cover most of the present and future needs in multiple application environments.

MASCOT's aims were to develop:

The 2-D graphics library of the MS-Windows Graphics Device Interface (GDI) was to be extended to 3-D geometrical objects, with a metalanguage mapped on GDI defined and implemented to describe the structure of a document; and desktop publishing and technical office software applications were to be written that made use of the extended GDI graphics library and the features of the metalanguage. An integrated feasibility model was to be developed to demonstrate the results of the research.
