Research in visual representation of terrain supported the development of images for simulated travel. Results showed that observers can estimate distances in photographs, both from the camera station to a target and between targets this performance is analogous to distance estimation in the real world. Distance estimation performance is affected by the focal length of the camera lens at which the picture is taken. Visual coherence the appearance of travel can be maintained when photographs are taken at steps greater than the ten feet used previously.
