I like the concept.
Any thought to how to demonstrate with IR wattages, distance and beam angle the night time visibility of the person in the lower right box with (no ambient lighting except:(i) new moon and cloud cover, (ii) clear sky with full moon)?

Awesome addition IPVM!........
I am wondering how difficult it would be to add you own camera specs to the database/calculator and add your own narrative????
Awesome! Best birthday present ever.
It might be useful to create a "standard picture" to use that has distance signs at common distances like 20', 50', 100', 150', 200', etc. (like a golf driving range) that are sized for readability at a certain ppf. You can still use your standard human target in there holding his favorite license plate in the picture!
Just a suggestion.
The images of the parking lot, hallway, and the intersection combined with the person+license plate give a good feel for recognition capabilities, a photo containing calibrated and marked distances would possibly give a better feel to the user as to distance estimates. It would relate the range to target on the left to the range from the camera in the image on the right.
I was thinking physical signs in the image, however that wouldn't work for third party photos. For your suggestion, I would put indicators more like a Google map pins that would identify the range to a specific pixel (the range could be hover enabled - keeping the pins small). Example attached of pins with details. The numbers need not be round numbers e.g. the car license plate might be 87 feet. The locations should be unambiguous like the lamp post, the car bumper, the street name sign, etc.
