Paper Abstract

Ambiguity concerning the terms Point of View and Frame of Reference has interfered with the accurate description, research and design of user displays. At least part of this misunderstanding is caused by the non-orthogonal of the terms; that is, not all points of view are possible in all frames of reference. The terms are disambiguated and defined in a simpler and more precise fashion so that displays can be accurately characterized. The new definitions also encourage development of new display designs, which can reduce the number of mental transformations users must perform and increase user comprension.
