This paper presents a MISR Visualization Experimental Environment which provides support to the development,
evaluation, experimentation, and transitioning of information visualization approaches to emulate the essential elements
of a future RMP. The environment provides a means of integrating and sharing the output of visualization tools; storing,
accessing and managing showcase examples of visual representations via an underlying visualization reference model;
and providing access to underlying data sources supplied through simulation, representative data, and operational data.
Visualization design and experimentation activities are also briefly introduced. The MISR experimental environment
may be used to characterize the various techniques evaluated and the results of experiments will be introduced as inputs
of the environment knowledge base. It is expected that the experimentation undertaken, supported by a MISR
experimental environment, will identify novel visualization approaches to be integrated in the future RMP and have the
potential to enhance maritime domain awareness.
