  • 21. InfoVis interaction experience
    • Interface manipulation activities
    • Sense-making activities
  • 22. InfoVis interaction experience

  • 23. Evaluating InfoVis
    • Challenge one:
    • What are the evaluation criteria ?
  • 24. Evaluating InfoVis
    • Challenge one:
    • What are the evaluation criteria ?
    • Insight?
    • But how to measure it?
  • 25. Evaluating InfoVis
    • Challenge two:
    • What evaluation methods to use?
  • 26. Evaluating InfoVis Challenge three: Subjectivity of the InfoVis experience
  • 27. Summary
    • Visual communication is powerful
    • - More InfoVis tools in future
    • InfoVis designs need validating
    • “ just because it’s graphical, doesn’t mean it’s useful”
    • Evaluating InfoVis experience is problematic
    • - We need specific evaluation methods and performance criteria
