Information visualization is one of the most important fields in RoboCup-Rescue research. As requirements for visualization vary by users and by their purpose of viewer use, we introduce a mechanism called user model. User models hold the requirements of typical users. They are used for the selection and customization of information, controls of viewer, and so on. We implemented the mechanism with five user models in RoboCup-Rescue 2D Viewer.
