At present IIASA offers to its scientific community a set of basic, but limited computer graphics capabilities. Recent computer-program development in the graphics area has created greater demand and more awareness of the possibilities of computer graphics as a visualization tool in modeling. Some other application fields, like the use of graphics as a tool for program development, were still not touched at IIASA.

In response to this demand, IIASA decided to order additional graphics hardware (display terminals and graphics compatible printers) and to invest a certain amount of resources into the generation of appropriate software. It is not the aim of this paper to discuss the benefits of graphics, but rather to identify the general graphics software requirements for IIASA and to propose a possible way of meeting them.
