Abstract

This thesis deals with a method for displaying a three dimensional seismic data matrix on a two dimensional monitor screen. Tne work is part of a more elaborate system where images will interactively be displayed with perspective and parallax among other things. Specificaly the thesis describes the mechanical, optical and electronic modifications of an existing flying spot scanner (Motorola Teleplayer 3TS-471) for use with a super 8mm film to display the images with a controlled degree of distortion. It is shown that the scanning field of the flying spot scanner should have the shape of a trapezoid with a variable size.
