Paper Abstract

Stereoscopic displays enhance the ability of the viewer to comprehend spatial relationships. With the commercial introduction of liquid crystal stereoscopic shutters (LCSS), it has become practical to incorporate stereoscopic 3D into moderately-priced graphics workstations, greatly extending the applicability of this technique. This paper reports on the results of an evaluation of stereoscopic 3D for Air Force applications. This work focused on the identification and development of optimized stereoscopic display techniques for the visualization of terrain data.
