Abstract:

An evaluation of the operational aspects of cartography for use in civil area navigation operations was undertaken through an analysis of the 1975-80 U.S. domestic airspace environment. Supporting data for this analysis was collected through a series of observation flights in map display, area navigation and conventional VOR navigation-equipped aircraft. Eight potential roles for map displays are discussed. Through a series of ten simulated flights using a variety of conventional, area navigation and map display equipment, the cartographic information elements necessary to operate in the 1975-80 airspace are identified. As an adjunct to the operational analyses, the cartographic and display variables which affect the utility of a map display are analyzed. Six major issues concerning the cartographic support of map displays are identified and discussed. Author Modified Abstract
