In command and control (C2) environments, decision makers must rapidly understand and address key temporal relationships that exist between critical tasks as conditions fluctuate. However, traditional temporal displays, such as mission timelines, fail to support user understanding of and reasoning about critical relationships. We have developed visualization methods to compactly and effectively convey key temporal constraints. In this paper, we present examples of our visualization approach and describe how we are exploring interaction methods within an integrated visualization workspace to support user awareness of temporal constraints.
