Abstract : This is the final report of research conducted under ONR contract N00014-71-C-0070, NR 213-075 entitled Development of Design Criteria for Projected Map Displays. Volume 2 consists of the statement of the design criteria. The criteria described are grouped under two main headings: (1) The Displayed Map Image and (2) Other Design Issues. Criteria appropriate to the displayed map image were developed from operational requirements and from legibility requirements. Criteria appropriate to other design issues deal with features of map displays that are not directly related to the displayed map image; i.e., operating modes, controls, updating, and the like.
