Faster document navigation with space-filling thumbnails

Andy Cockburn, Carl Gutwin, Jason Alexander
2006 Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human Factors in computing systems - CHI '06  
The second and third studies (n=32 and n=14) were detailed comparisons of SFT with thumbnail-enhanced scrollbars (TES), which performed well in the first experiment.  ...  SFT provides two views: a standard page view for reading, and a thumbnail view that shows all pages. We tested SFT in three experiments that involved finding pages in documents.  ...  The tasks used in our experiment are necessarily artificial, particularly with the 300 page document.  ...

An evaluation of integrated zooming and scrolling on small screens

Steve Jones, Matt Jones, Gary Marsden, Dynal Patel, Andy Cockburn
2005 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
They also observe that small scrollbar movements can result in large movements of the viewport for long documents, causing disorientation and confusion for the user.  ...  Previous research indicated dramatic user performance improvements when using the technique for document and map tasks.  ...  For both document and maps one can imagine a series of semantic highlights that are introduced as the magnification-level decreases: e.g., in maps, key landmarks could be emphasised while lower-level detail  ...

2013 Scholarly and Research Communication  
Combined, the two sections inform an integrated approach in the development of new research environments.  ...  In the development of new research environments, hardware has often been neglected.  ...  This article not only shows the possible benefits of this system, but also provides an indication of the possible benefit of using (semi) commercial applications in educational settings, for instance Diigo  ...

Supporting human memory in personal information management

David Elsweiler
2008 SIGIR Forum  
Implicit and Explicit memories At a high level, information stored in long-term memory can be sorted into two categories.  ...  and landmarks.  ...  It is important to note that neither the interfaces nor the evaluation methodologies used in the two studies were identical and the findings should be considered with respect to this point.  ...

Understanding and Exploiting Spatial Memory in the Design of Efficient Command Selection Interfaces [article]

Joseph Laurence Scarr, University Of Canterbury
2014
However, there are two ways in which modern applications often fail to exploit the potential of spatial memory.  ...  The CommandMap is a spatially stable interface with a flattened hierarchy, intended as a replacement for cascading menu systems.  ...  [3] applied this to within-document navigation with their Footprints Scrollbar, which places coloured marks in the scrollbar at recently visited document locations.  ...

Understanding and Improving Personal File Retrieval [article]

Stephen Fitchett, University Of Canterbury
2014
This thesis examines two broad goals in file retrieval: understanding current file retrieval behaviour, and improving file retrieval by designing improved user interfaces.  ...  interact with common file retrieval tools.  ...  Third, the improved navigation techniques described in this thesis could be further improved based on feedback from field study participants.  ...

The Effect of Animated Transitions on User Navigation in 3D Tree-Maps

T. Bladh, D.A. Carr, M. Kljun
Ninth International Conference on Information Visualisation (IV'05)  
This paper describes a user study conducted to evaluate the use of smooth animated transitions between directories in a three-dimensional, tree-map visualization.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank those who participated in both the study and pilot testing. We would also like to thank Carl Rollo for proofreading the drafts of this paper.  ...  When we introduce animated transitions (showing us "artificially" how one place relates to another), it might be that this short-circuits our landmark navigational mechanism.  ...

The Temporal Organisation of Documents and Versions: A User-Centred Investigation [article]

Michael Patrick JasonSmith, University Of Canterbury
2008
These human factors are related to the user's tasks with documents and document versions: finding, reminding, error-recovery and system exploration.  ...  In this thesis a study of computing systems that use time as the primary method of organising electronic documents, and versions of electronic documents, is presented.  ...  It consists of a simple list and a scrollbar, with the most recently viewed page at the top.  ...

Semiotics of spreadability: A systematic approach to Internet memes and virality

Gabriele Marino
2015 Punctum International Journal of Semiotics  
The containment schema and the in-out schema are two excellent examples of schemata at work in the interaction with a GUI. The first one applies to documents in a folder or to objects in a window.  ...  Characters are placed in the image's centre, looking at the audience in a long shot from an eye-level camera angle, waiting to be chosen for interaction.  ...  (Bakhtin 1986) … this is the last fragment written by Bakhtin in 1974 (Todorov 1981 The story is written in the form of a diary, and the last entry, from 2025, ends with the announcement: Comrades,  ...

Understanding the noticeability and distraction of interactive highlighting techniques [article]

Joshua Leung, University Of Canterbury
2017
To address this knowledge gap, this thesis provides contributions in three key areas: 1) A structured design framework for describing highlighting techniques in terms of their construction and control;  ...  However, the lack of understanding of how noticeability and distraction relate to each other, along with not knowing how we can manipulate the techniques to affect the balance between these complicates  ...  Other examples of highlighting techniques used to improve navigation interfaces include scrollbars enriched with revisitation hints such as Read Wear scrollbars [84] (where the past frequency of revisitation  ...

A Model for Implementing Open Badges in a Resource-Constrained Environment

MATTHEUS DANIEL NIEMAND
2017
Current Mozilla systems have been developed for ideal environments and prior attempts in implementing such a system in a resource-constrained environment within South Africa have resulted in failure.  ...  This research produces a model that allows for the successful implementation of open badges in resource-constrained environments.  ...  This study has done so by documenting its results and conclusions within this thesis. During the course of this research, two papers were published in international conferences.  ...

Designing and testing a prototypical landscape information interface for lay-people

Jonathan D. Salter
2005
The resulting interface displayed landscape visualizations and indicator graphs in association with other contextual information.  ...  Landscape management is increasingly moving towards managing for multiple values and involving the public in decision-making processes.  ...  Storage of schema in long-term memory can be thought of as a network of interconnected nodes of information, with smaller, lower-level schema combining to form higher-level, more complex schema.  ...
