1. GUI Implementation

This page is meant to give a high-level description of how GISMO's user interface is implemented.

System Requirements

To create windows and other useful widgets, GISMO's interface uses various FLTK classes. Since one of the FLTK widgets GISMO uses is Fl_Gl_Window, GISMO needs OpenGL support; within the CS Department, this requires running GISMO on an SGI machine.
