AGOCG Technical Report 6

An Evaluation of CGM Generators and Interpreters

Alan Francis
February 1991

This report evaluates CGMs from a number of graphics applications widely used in the UK Higher Education community. It notes some compatibility problems encountered when using a CGM in a different package to the one which created it.

The report is in four parts:

  1. description of CGM
  2. quality of CGMs generated by packages
  3. evaluation of the capability of packages to interpret CGMs
  4. suggestions as to CGM transfer pathways
