This paper is presenting a short overview of a human factors project aiming to improve decision-making in navigation by removing the need to conduct mental rotations. This is done by presenting the map in an egocentric view; here called a 3D map. Laboratory experiments have shown clear advantages for the 3D map compared with traditional exocentric map displays. Finally a short description of ongoing work is presented.
