The machine refinement of raw graphic data for translation into a low level data base for computer aided architectural design (CAAD). (1984)
Thesis
LEIFER, D.M. 1984. The machine refinement of raw graphic data for translation into a low level data base for computer aided architectural design (CAAD). Robert Gordon's Institute of Technology, PhD thesis.

It is argued that a significant feature which acts as a disincentive against the adoption of CAAD systems by small private architectural practices, is the awkwardness of communicating with computers when compared with traditional drawing board techni...
