Abstract : The purpose of this study was to determine what factors or variables relate to the relative difficulty of the transparencies used in Norair simulation studies. It was assumed that the mean radial miss distance is related to the difficulty of a transparency. It is also assumed that the relative difficulty of a transparency is related to variables thought to be significant in photo-interpretations. This study is then an attempt to relate the relative difficulty of a transparency as measured by the mean radial miss distance of the subjects in Norair Simulation Study and the ratings of ten subjects rating the transparencies in terms of variables used in photo-interpretation.
