ner of presenting recognition features in a key so as to aid an interpreter in final identification of an object seen in imagery. Each experiment involved different combinations of the characteristics under study-- 1 type of presentation use of photographs or outline drawings, or both, 2 viewing angle certical, oblique, or both, and 3 scale of the image in the key large or small. In the first experiment, computer-aided procedures for selecting the category of the object imaged were included. In experiments two and three, no computer aids were employed. The interpreter used only the key which contained no textual material. In each experiment, recently graduated image interpreters identified a series of 16 vehicles organized into four sets and presented in a balanced research design. Two levels of quality were used in the test imagery.
