We study augmented video as a mechanism for improving collaboration and decision making. Our special focus is decision making that depends on decision-makers and information analysts sharing their understanding. The interaction between these two groups involves commanders passing their intent to their information analysts, then refining their plans and decisions on the basis of information gathered by their analysts, often using AUV’s.  More

Three-dimensional computer graphics is completely accepted as a required adjunct to scientific computing. The use of 3D has swept the workstation world and, thanks to PC accelerator cards, is now moving onto the desktop as well. Because of VRML and programming language APIs such as Java 3D, three-dimensional displays are also sweeping the World Wide Web. We all welcome this, but do we know exactly what it is we are welcoming?  More
