Abstract: This thesis describes an animation extension to a high-level graphical programming language which provides constructs for the definition, manipulation, and external representation of three-dimensional articulate figures and and their associated movements. The extension permits the definition of models consisting of segments and joints and the specification of each model's motion at a high level of abstraction. The relationship of the extension with respect to the host language is discussed and a general description of the animation language's design and implementation is given. The modelling and motion constructs are discussed and examples of the constructs are presented. It is concluded that high level animation permits the implementation of sophisticated application programs that are easy to read and understand.
