Abstract : This report summarizes the research on user performance and display quality metrics pertinent to flat-panel displays. The report is divided into five sections. Section 1 is a brief introduction. Section 2 provides a description of each of the current flat-panel technologies and compares the technologies based on nine display parameters. Section 3 summaries research investigating the effects of various display variables on user performance. The research described in this section is divided into three types; alphanumeric research, cartographic/symbolic research, and literal research. Section 4 defines and discusses different quality metrics which have been used by researchers to predict user performance. One purpose of this literature review was to determine variables requiring further investigation. Based on the findings, an experimental plan is presented in Section 5. An annotated bibliography of references pertinent to these topics is included at the end of the report. (Author)
