Research Institution
Current and future operational environments are likely to be characterized by a range of missions in a variety of locations around the world. For all these operational environments there is a large volume of data collected via sensors, human input, simulations and models that need to be analyzed to support effective decision-making. However, the problem with all of this data is information overload. Hence, military decision makers need to be able to abstract data to amplify cognition via information visualization. This research will design and build new collaborative visualization tools and techniques to support real-time decision making for large datasets with different quality, pedigree, redundancy and uncertainty levels. The Collaborative Visualization Environment– CoVE – will be based on team collaboration theory, combined with an organizational model, to provide a wide variety of interactive chats, graphs and dashboards supported by innovative information sharing technology.
