Model-driven visualization (MDV) is a novel framework that supports more effective, intelligent user interfaces to improve decision making in complex environments by coupling cognitive and perceptual theories of information processing with advanced artificial intelligence methods. It embeds empirical and theory driven approaches for identifying and prioritizing data based on the information requirements and needs of the human decision maker within intelligent agents. The agents automatically deliver and present information based on its likely value using visualizations that best convey that information to the user(s) of the system. Agents also reason about the context and constraints of the user, environment, and display to enable a higher degree of personalization within an interactive user interface (e.g., by drawing a user’s attention to interesting aspects of the data such as trends, anomalies, and patterns). We apply cognitive systems engineering processes to help identify the information available to individuals and/or teams, where it resides, where it is needed, and ultimately how to create the mappings required in connecting critical information to those who need it with innovative visualizations that most effectively support the end user. This paper describes the application of MDV to intelligently deliver timely, mission-critical information by adapting a Common Tactical Picture (CTP) display used for maritime situation awareness, threat assessment, and decision support.
