Information Analytics and Visualization

Evaluating 3D Visualization Technology for Commmand and Control applications


There are several command and control (C2) scenarios where 3D information could be helpful, such as determining if the terrain is too steep for passage or ascertaining line-of-sight information for reconnaissance. However, the impact of 3D visualizations and the use of 3D stereoscopy to the C2 environment are not well-studied. This project develops a software platform for analyzing different information visualization options in a C2 application and uses it to evaluate which of the visualization options and devices are most effective at helping users analyze the data and improve their situational awareness.
