”If this is the way to drive a ship – just anyone could do it”: 3D nautical charts. About creating acceptance and building standards for VR within the maritime domain
Paper i proceeding, 2010

This paper is presenting a short overview of a human factors project aiming to improve decision-making in navigation by removing the need to conduct mental rotations. This is done by presenting the map in an egocentric view, here called a 3D map. Laboratory experiments have shown clear advantages for the 3D map compared with traditional exocentric map displays. Finally a short description of ongoing work is presented.
