A system that uses 3-D computer graphics to integrate and visualize flight information and to encode navigational information of the objects of a 3-D scene is described. The computer-generated views of geographic features, weather information, and air traffic used in the system are discussed. The system's support of instrument approach technology is also discussed. A number of design notions that have come out of this work, are reviewed.<>
