The existing differences between the concepts of GKS/GKS-3D and PHIGS are not only because of technical reasons. The approach of PHI-GKS presented in this paper describes the concepts which offer the functionality provided in PHIGS and ensures compatibility to GKS and GKS-3D. The harmonization of these graphics standards is not only necessary for the expansion of existing application programms, but also for the development of the related standards like CGI/CGM or the presentation in STEP (Standard of Exchange of Product Model Data).
