Aiding the intelligence analyst

"Aiding the Intelligence Analyst in Situations of Data Overload: from problem definition to design concept exploration" -- Emily S. Patterson, David D. Woods -- Cog Sys Eng Lab, Ohio State, Emilie M. Roth, Roth Cognitive Engineering, etc (affiliated with AFRC, and Wright-Patterson AFB).

One of the best documents on massive data, including designing for massive TEXTUAL data. Includes the fabulous quote, "The baby is assailed by eye, ear, nose, skin and entrails at once, feels it all as one great blooming, buzzing confusion," (James, 1890, I 488). Compares us to the baby in the great "explosion of available data" and the limits of current technology and display methods.
