Evaluating Use of Interfaces for Visual Query Specification

  title={Evaluating Use of Interfaces for Visual Query Specification},
  author={Line Hove},
We present an empirical study of how users express information needs visually through “Query by sketch” interfaces. The objective of the study has been to gain an understanding of how users translate information needs into visual queries (VQ) and what type of problems they encounter.
