USER TESTING RESULTS – MEASURING EFFECTIVENESS OF STATIC MAPS
The dataset includes information on the user testing results of the study about the effectiveness mesuerement odf the use of static maps andtheir banded versions. The main variables are (quantitative) : Completion time and success rates and quantitative (number of votes about the effectiveness of each map).
Below we describe the two files and fields included in the dataset:
Total data by task:Task: Task numberUser: user idresult: success (OK)/ error (KO)/ abandonmenttime: time needed to perform each task (sec)time_applied: time with abandonment correctionmap: map name (choropleth, tile grid map, banded chooropleth, banded tile grid map)
Totals:Task: Task numberChart: Map typeAvg_time: Avg_time to perform the taskAvg_time estimated: Avg_time with abandoment correction (120s)Positive votes: Number of votes received as the best map Negative votes: Number of votes received as the worst mapsuccess: (%) success rateerror: (%) error rateabandonment: (%) abandonment rate
