A system for displaying data to produce a three-dimensional image, and interactively modifying and transforming the data and the resultant image in response to user commands comprises control circuitry, a high-speed processor linked to the control circuitry, a memory linked to the control circuitry and to the high-speed processor, and a raster-based display linked to the control circuitry and to the memory. The control circuitry is programmed to transfer data from the memory to the high-speed processor, to control the high-speed processor in modifying and transforming the data in response to, and in accordance with, the user command to obtain transformed data representative of a plurality of two-dimensional rasters of pixels, to transfer the transformed data from the high-speed processor to the memory, and to control the raster-based display in displaying the transformed data.
