Title / Titel The effect of time pressure on map-based decision-making
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung How do people make decisions with maps in time critical situations (i.e., search and rescue)? In this research project PhD student Jan Wilkening (advisor: Sara Fabrikant) empirically explores the effect of temporal constraints on the efficiency and effectiveness of spatial decision-making with visual displays. We tackle this under-researched area with a series of user experiments on digital maps with varying levels of interactivity and degrees of realism. The goal of this research is to identify design-guidelines based on empirical data for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of human decision-making with maps in time pressure situations.
