Abstract
COMPUTER GRAPHICS METAFILE (CGM), ISO/IEC 8632, IS THE ONLY NATIONAL (ANSI) INTERNATIONAL (ISO), AND FEDERAL (FIPS) STANDARD FOR THE DEVICE AND APPLICATION INDEPENDENT CAPTURE, STORAGE, AND INTERCHANGE OF COMPUTER GRAPHICS PICTURES. CGM IS WIDELY IMPLEMENTED, AND IS A STANDARD OF POTENTIALLY GREAT COMMERCIAL IMPORTANCE. QUALITY COMMERCIAL IMPLEMENTATIONS THAT INTEROPERATE SMOOTHLY ARE CRITICAL TO REALIZING THIS POTENTIAL. IT IS KNOWN THAT PRODUCT CERTIFICATION IS A PREREQUISITE. NIST HAS A TEST SUITE AND HAS ESTABLISHED A TEST SERVICE FOR THE VERSION 1 SUBSET OF CGM: 1992 AND THE CALS MIL-D-28003A. CGM: 1992/AMD.1 HAS ADDED A MODEL PROFILE (MP) AND RULES FOR PROFILES. MOST OF THE IMPORTANT FUTURE COMMERCIAL PROFILES (AND THE FIPS) WILL BE CLOSELY RELATED. THERE IS NEED FOR TEST SUITES AND SERVICES FOR FULL MP. COMPARED TO THE CURRENT NIST CAPABILITY, MP DOUBLES THE NUMBER OF ELEMENTS, ADDS ENCODINGS, AND CONTAINS COMPLETELY NEW CONCEPTS (IIRS/GIRS). THE PROPOSAL IS FOR A FULL MP TEST SUITE (PHASE 1 AND PHASE 2). PHASE 1 RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP MODELS TO CATEGORIZE AND PRIORITIZE THE NEW FEATURES, REUSING EXISTING NIST PRINCIPLES AND SPECIFICATIONS TO THE GRATEST DEGREE COMMENSURATE WITH THE INNOVATIONS IN THE MP, WILL INVENT NEW APPROACHES WHERE REQUIRED BY SUCH INNOVATIONS, AND WILL RESULT IN COMPLETE SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE FULL MP TEST SUITE.
