This document presents the results of the investigation of the value of semiautomated display systems for emergency operations at the municipal level. The evaluation consisted of two phases Phase I was directed toward determining the value of semiautomated displays for municipal executives in their emergency decision making using a model semiautomatic display system in a simulated emergency operations context. Phase II was a human engineering investigation of the operator and viewer interface with the model display system, to identify those design changes that should be incorporated if Phase I indicated that a semiautomatic system was desirable. The findings of these two phases are presented, together with a discussion of the value of semiautomatic displays at the local level, the required characteristics of displays for municipal-level EOCs, and the value of fully-automatic systems at the local, state and regional levels.
