Patents

System and method for measuring user experience of information visualizations

The experience of information visualisations depend on multiple qualitative, quantitative, and contextual parameters which are often unmeasurable and incomparable. This patent relates to a system and method that collects, processes, and analyzes multiple parameters to profile the visualization. This is done by considering context by computing the chart complexity, benchmarking, summarizing parameters as hedonic and pragmatic scores, plotting on a scatter chart, and labeling based on scatter chart position.
