Abstract
An interactive spatial information system (ISIS) offers novel opportunities for decision aiding. Its synoptic and dynamic information can assist the user to discover as well as to evaluate options. Spatial display may help the symbiosis between human intuition and computer logic. The ISIS should be able to perform intelligent operations on its data, detecting inconsistencies between new and old information, assisting in the evaluation of plans, and so forth. DCIEM has developed a miniature ISIS called SDBMS-1, using an extension of a commercial relational database management system. It has been implemented using MASCOT technology, to permit easy modification as a consequence of experience. It allows the user to interact by keyboard, voice, or graphic gesture, and provides output alphanumerically or graphically. The information consists of topographic data from digitized standard maps and synthetic tactical data representing military operations. TRUNCATED
