ENERGRAPHICS

Microcomputers have made a significant impact on our society.  One aspect of microcomputers that is still being perfected has the ability to increase it's greater potential.  While computers can handle numbers, people are mare visual and therefore can handle pictures much easier.  Energraphics was developed to turn those numbers into pictures.  But Energraphics does much more than that.
