Abstract : On April 1, 2005, Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) started a new applied research project (ARP) in the Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) thrust: Information visualization and management for enhanced domain awareness in maritime security (11he). This is the final report on the project. 11he was a 4-year R&D project with the goal of enhancing the maritime picture through improved quality of information and novel, adaptive ways of visualizing that information. The project was focused on visualization design and experimentation as well as creating a visualization testbed. This work included doing a study on the Future Recognized Maritime Picture, a state-of-the-art-study on Information Visualization from a Maritime Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (MISR) point of view, work on developing visualization to represent the uncertainty inherent in the information populating the Recognized Maritime Picture (RMP), work on developing non-intrusive alerts to be used in the RMP when anomalies are detected, and a MISR-Vis testbed to help in the generation of effective MISR related visualizations. This report gives some background on the 11he project, documents what was achieved, and points the reader to the reports generated by the work.
