The purpose of the experimentation was to abstract the problem of reading an engineering drawing so untrained observers could be used, and in so doing, find the minimum detail of drafted materials. Once the minimum detail condition was established, testing was to continue to find the procedures necessary to test for correlation between resolution targets and the minimum detail. The final goal was to reach a set of recommendations for further work and reduce the amount of unnecessary work for later experimenters. In short this paper was to help bring the testing of resolution and drafted materials to the same point as has been done between resolution targets and text materials.
