WINDOWING AND CLIPPING The world coordinate system is used to define the position of objects in the natural world. This system does not depend on the screen coordinate system, so the interval of number can be anything (positive, negative or decimal). Sometimes the complete picture of object in the world coordinate system is too large and complicate to clearly show on the screen, and we need to show only some part of the object. The capability that show some part of object in a specified window is called windowing and a rectangular region in a world coordinate system is called window .
A Window is a rectangular region in the world coordinate system. This is the coordinate system used to locate an object in the natural world. A Viewport is the section of the screen where the images encompassed by the window on the world coordinate system will be drawn. A coordinate transformation is required to display the image, encompassed by the window, in the viewport.

The viewport uses the screen coordinate system so this transformation is from the world coordinate system to the screen coordinate system. When a window is "placed" on the world, only certain objects and parts of objects can be seen. Points and lines which are outside the window are "cut off" from view. This process of "cutting off" parts of the image of the world is called Clipping .
In clipping, we examine each line to determine whether or not it is completely

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
