The period 1989 - 1994:
Graphical servicesn

In 1989, UNIRAS graphical packages were installed on the Convex, the VAX 6310 and a SUN of the Observation systems division These packages comprised Unimap, Unigraph and the FGL- and AGL-libraries. As the workstations and desktops increasingly became powerful, the requirements for special purpose graphical equipment decreased fast. At first, the SUN3/GX4000-configuration was taken out of service as a Laboratory general service in 1992. The configuration was maintained by the IT-division in order to finish some projects that still required this configuration. Temporarily, a Silicon Graphics 240/VGX configuration was installed in the graphical systems part of the central computer room. This system was only used by the (former) group "parallel systems". In 1994, the I2S-configuration was put out of use.
