Effects of display contrast and field of view on distance perception
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, the field of view and contrast of imagery were manipulated to determine their effects on observers' ability to estimate distances of targets within natural settings. Images were video taped with a rotating camera and the targets were placed between 9.14 m and 60.96 m from the camera. The fields of view ranged from 20 deg to 74 deg. A lightly wooded area and an open field were used to provide either high or low visual contexts, respectively. Participants rated their confidence in the distance estimates on a seven-point scale.
