Analysis of battlefield training is being enhanced with computer screens that display maps of the battlefield. At the National training Center (NTC) Ft. Irwin, CA, training battles are digitally recorded to be analyzed later by military officers, tacticians, and analysts. A large screen computer generated map display is used to unfold the battle one piece at a time to see what caused the forces to achieve success or failure. As an improvement to current battlefield displays, graphical methods and techniques are presented for aggregating the elements of combat units. The techniques focus on locating a unit, graphically summarizing the movement of a unit, and graphically depicting a unit's dispersion on the battlefield. These methods are intended for use in post-battle analysis software platforms like the ones used at the NTC.
