Electronic Approach Chart Display Issues: Design Recommendations from Part-Mission Simulation Evaluation 975555

The transition towards the “paper-less cockpit” presents an opportunity for transferring approach chart information from the current paper format to an electronic medium. This transfer offers a number of potential benefits, but also raises design issues, that need to be resolved. This paper addresses several issues that are relevant to the electronic depiction of approach information and presents performance data-based design guidelines pertaining to the issues in question: (1) Amount of displayed information or display “clutter,” (2) map orientation, and (3) information location/integration.
