Abstract
The intent of the common operational picture (COP) is to provide a shared understanding of the battlespace to improve responsiveness and provide decision dominance. A fundamental problem for this shared understanding is the co-ordination of views on an information/knowledge space. We argue that this problem is related to the frame of reference concept and present a framework for that concept that classifies those factors that improve or degrade performance when co?ordinating information across views of spatial data. We also consider similar display concepts from information visualization (depicting file structures, networks, the web, windows and other interface elements) and from display design guidelines from other domains (e.g., process control, medical imaging), and note the fundamental similarities. The relevant literatures underline a recurring need for depicting both global context and local content, which leads to the need for multiple displays, and methods for helping a user transition across multiple displays.
