# Planar Geometric Projections and Viewing Transformations

@article{Carlbom1978PlanarGP, title={Planar Geometric Projections and Viewing Transformations}, author={I. Carlbom and Joseph Paciorek}, journal={ACM Comput. Surv.}, year={1978}, volume={10}, pages={465-502} }

In computer graphics one is often concerned with representing three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional display surface. The choice of such a representation depends on several factors, including the purpose for which the representation is intended, the visual effects tha t are desired, and the shape of the object. This paper describes how twodimensional views can be obtained using planar geometric projections such as perspective and parallel projections. It discusses how these projectionsâ€¦Â Expand

Using a fixed center of projection above the table reduces error and improves accuracy in most tasks, and has far-reaching implications for the design of 3D views on tables, in particular, for multi-user applications where projections that appear correct for one person will not be perceived correctly by another.
