Future Applications of Geometry and Graphics


  • Eric N. Wiebe North Carolina State University


Definitions of geometry and graphics are developed based on a panel discussion held at the 8th International Conference on Engineering Computer Graphics and Descriptive Geometry (ICECGDG) held in Austin, Texas (Baker, et al., 1998).  These definitions are used as a starting point for discussion of the future applications of geometry and graphics in engineering graphics education.  Past, present, and future applications in graphical analysis, descriptive geometry, and engineering documentation are used as examples.
