This paper describes an interactive programming environment and tools designed to facilitate the rapid implementation, testing and evaluation of algorithms and systems for image processing, image understanding, and 2- and 3-D graphics processing. The environment, termed Scope, is Lisp-based, resides on a Symbolics 36xx Lisp machine, and provides a tightly-coupled interface between the Symbolics Lisp machine and a Pixar 2D Image Computer. In particular, the environment provides an integrated set of utilities for program development and program maintenance based on the Symbolics Genera operating system. In addition, a wide range of near-real-time image and symbolic operations are provided, and a variety of image and symbolic representations are supported. The environment is specifically designed to facilitate crosstalk between numeric and symbolic data representations and processes. This paper discusses the major features of the environment and their use in developing and investigating selected image understanding capabilities.
