Sample text

We consider the function of representations, and then look at maps and models, before considering the particular characteristics of virtual reality and tools to enhance its use. Representations Representations of reality are abstractions. They have a special status as perceptual objects because they have been created to be meaningful (Scaife and Rogers, 1996). How well we perform with different forms of representation depends upon our experience, abilities, strategies and motivation (Chen and Stanney, 1999).

1996). We will see that leading industrial users are using both iconic and symbolic representations. Problem solving Representations are among the principal tools we have for exploring, manipulating and conjuring possibilities (Tufte, 1997; Groák, 2001). Any particular representation makes certain information explicit at the expense of information that is pushed into the background and may be quite hard to recover (Marr, 1982). On a map of a city, for example, an experienced map-reader may find information about spatial configuration and routes easy to understand, whilst they may find the visual appearance of streets harder to recover.

They can be divided into implementation errors, limitations of the current technology and intrinsic qualities (Drascic and Milgram, 1996) though categorization of particular errors may be contentious. These distortions are similar to looking at the world through different lenses. People can adapt rather quickly to miscalibrated systems and the problems raised are more acute for mixed reality, where virtual images are overlaid on the real world (Drascic and Milgram, 1996). 2 CALVIN at the University of Illinois, USA Use of different viewing perspectives was explored in a research project at the University of Illinois in Chicago (Leigh and Johnson, 1996).
