Abstract : Experimental psychologists and instrument designers have during the past three decades or more, made several attempts to improve the design of the altimeter dial display. These efforts have on fact been necessitated by the many problems of dial interpretation peculiar to the altimeter. This paper describes some if the designs which have been developed during the recent year and discusses also the main trends of future design.
