EVALUATION OF THE OPERATIONAL, DESIGN AND SUPPORT ASPECTS OF CARTOGRAPHY FOR USE IN CIVIL AREA NAVIGATION MAP DISPLAYS. VOLUME I. TECHNICAL

An evaluation of the operational aspects of cartography for use in civil area navigation operations was undertaken through an analysis of the 1975-80 U.S. domestic airspace environment. Supporting data for this analysis was collected through a series of observation flights in map display, area navigation and conventional VOR navigation-equipped aircraft. Eight potential roles for map displays are discussed. Through a series of ten simulated flights using a variety of conventional, area navigation and map display equipment, the cartographic information elements necessary to operate in the 1975-80 airspace are identified. As an adjunct to the operational analyses, the cartographic and display variables which affect the utility of a map display are analyzed. Six major issues concerning the cartographic support of map displays are identified and discussed. (Author Modified Abstract)
