Abstract:

The use of information technology to support work and aid in decision making has brought about new ways of displaying information on computer screens. The more information required, the more complex those displays have become. Goals of this research project were to 1 develop and test basic methodology for recommending complex display color coding and 2 to use results from that methodology to recommend specific changes to the Work-Centered Support System for Global Weather Management WCSS-GWM application. The on-going research shows how a simple laboratory search technique may be used to recommend chromaticities and other characteristics for use in current and future systems.
