VizCommender: Computing Text-Based Similarity in Visualization Repositories for Content-Based Recommendations [article]

Michael Oppermann, Robert Kincaid, Tamara Munzner
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We report on a crowd-sourced user study to determine if our similarity measure mimics human judgement.  ...  When shared, these collections can form a visual analytic knowledge base. However, as the size of a collection increases, so does the difficulty in finding relevant information.  ...  The insights gained from informal model experiments, the study, and discussions with our collaborators were incorporated into the prototype which was continuously refined.  ...

This measurement of trust can provide a deeper insight into the construct of trust and the design elements that influence it. In this paper we present a review of trust evaluation methods.  ...  We then evaluate user trust with the TIME Method to demonstrate the degree of trust variability. Last, we discuss future methods for evaluating trust.  ...  The first information repository used by participants was the Usability Case Study Library (UCS). The UCS is a focused collection of case studies with associated design artifacts.  ...
