Towards Principles for Usability Evaluation in Web Mapping -usability Research for Cartographic Information Systems

Abstract

User-centred design and usability engineering are advancing in the field of online mapping applications. A vast number of different methods of usability evaluation exist and not many studies have yet investigated their suitability and usefulness for testing cartographic online applications. The importance of designing products for the users and around how users work is evident for creating successful online mapping applications. Selected methods of user testing are examined and a framework for evaluating usability of online mapping applications in prototype and final stages is proposed.
