AbstractCurrent approaches for planning earth-viewing missions involve plotting and presenting data in many different forms. This approach is time consuming and fails to combine the necessary data (e.g., earth geomorphology, satellite viewing region, sun angles, and meteorological effects) in a common frame of reference. The mission analysis planning system (MAPS) pictorially displays, in color on a back-lit screen, up to ten independent factors that influence mission decision making. Image intensity is controlled independently, and images can be superimposed on one another. The MAPS design is described, and some applications are presented.
