Real seamen never turn the chart upside down« Safer navigation with egocentric view 3-D nautical charts?
Magazine article, 2007

This article presents recent information design research from Mälardalen University in Sweden where a project aims at developing a new 3-D nautical chart that can be viewed both from a traditional bird’s eye perspective, and from a new egocentric bridge view perspective. In the article an experiment is presented which shows the new egocentric view to be more efficient (faster decision making and fewer errors) than the traditional display modes.
