Notes

Diane Keller, CSE

A user turned Boffin! Described work carried out at CSE to assist users to browse and select documents. Three types of visualisation have been trialed including a document landscape where each document is shown as a small bitmap.

 

It was said that an understanding of the analytic process from a cognitive/perceptual perspective is needed.

 

Sun Creator 3D workstations with the possibility of moving to VRML to access more users. Also possibility of inclusion of software agents in future.

Micha Pazner

Suggested a map metaphor for display of information. His view is that most analysts will find the map metaphor intuitive.
