Reflections on an Experiment, Evaluating the Impact of Spatialisation on Exploration [article]

Clement Roux, John McAuley
2017 Eurographics Conference on Visualization  
This paper reports on an experiment designed to evaluate whether visualising a digital library (using a spatialisation technique) can influence exploratory search behaviour. In the experiment we asked participants to complete a set of novel tasks using one of two interfaces - a visualisation interface, ExploViz, and its search-based equivalent, LibSearch. A set of measures were used to capture sensemaking and exploratory behaviour and to analyse cognitive load. As results were non-significant,
