  title={RAPPORT A syntax directed approach to picture semantics},
  author={Danli Wang and Henk Zeevat},
If one constructs a visual language, it is necessary to have a methodology for constructing the relationship between aspects of the pictures and the corresponding aspects of the application domain. The various methods for specifying Visual Languages emphasize computational aspects, where the semantics of the picture is embedded in the computational setting of the speciication, but they are not based on an understanding of the cognitive issues involved in the semantics of pictures and in the use… CONTINUE READING
