Abstract
This Final Report provides an analysis of the current state of the art for Information Visualization, as it applies to Maritime Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (MISR). It comprises a Literature Survey, an Annotated Bibliography, a Product Review, and recommendations for further research. The Literature Survey focuses on visualization algorithms and strategies, human factors for visualization, and emerging display hardware, and includes a list of foundational books and papers, an introduction to major research leaders, and a list of current pressing research questions. The Annotated Bibliography provides about 240 references to texts, conferences, journals, and institutional websites. The Product Review gives one-page descriptions of sixty eight MISR-related visualization products, ranging from public-domain code for a specific visualization task, to commercial multipurpose toolkits. The report concludes by recommending specific research tasks for visualizing sensor coverage and ignorance, ship tracks in time and space, ship tracks versus “normal” tracks, and attribute data such as cargo and crew.
