An empirical study of task support in 3D information visualizations
1998 (English)Report (Other academic)
There is still little knowledge about what factors are important for the usability of a 3D user interface. We have performed a comparative study of three 3D information visualizations as a step towards a better understanding of this. The study involved 25 volunteer subjects, performing three di erent tasks with the visualizations. The results of the study indicates that local and global overview is an overwhelmingly important factor. We also find that custom navigation is crucial in 3D user interfaces. Finally, the study raises the question of what types of tasks a 3D user interface is best suited for.
