  • Boundary labeling deals with annotating features in images such that labels are placed outside of the image and are connected by curves so-called leaders to the corresponding features. While boundary labeling has been extensively investigated from an algorithmic perspective, the research on its readability has been neglected. In this paper we present the first formal user study on the readability of boundary labeling. We consider the four most studied leader types with respect to their… CONTINUE READING
