Abstract
Battlespace visualisation software has been developed with the intent to display pertinent information in comprehensible form to the commander or command team. However, it is unclear whether such technology actually improves the effectiveness of military forces, or even the command team itself. In this paper, common types of tasks that a commander might perform with a visualisation system are described. The importance of task dependency when considering the effectiveness of a visualisation system is considered. Various common performance measures are described, and then discussed with respect to command and control tasks. The utility of visualisation taxonomies are their implications for measurement are discussed. Potentially useful new measurement strategies are described. Finally, an overarching strategy for human performance measurement with visualisation systems is proposed.
