Functions of Graphics as a Methodological Basis of Graphics Science
Kiev National University of Construction and Architecture, Povitroflotskyi pr. 31, Kyiev 03037, Ukraine
We consider the methodological problem of the development of the scientific specialty "Applied geometry and engineering graphics", namely, a search for the scientific content of the "graphics" components. This suggested to consider the concept of functionality or features of graphics. Thus, the key notion of content, and therefore the defining term for the graphical components of the scientific specialty was chosen to be "graphic technology". According to the author, such renaming significantly strengthens and enhances the prospects of scientific research in the field of graphics. From another point of view, such actions in the future could increase the viability of graphics in the system of higher education.
Keywords: Functions of graphics, graphics technology, applied geometry.
