Abstract
This report presents a summary of the work reported in Volume I. A task analytic approach was used to define information requirements and visual features that served as sources of information. From this analysis, visual attention locations, containing one or more important visual features, were identified. The procedure makes use of a human eye reference measurement instrument (hermi) designed for this project and an outside-in photographic procedure for documenting compliance with the recommendations. Samples of the test procedures and the results are presented.
