This study explores the design considerations and usability factors of using large multi touch interfaces. During this study, an experimental approach incorporating a large multi touch interfaces environment was used. After the expert analysis and pilot test session, there were end user usability test sessions. During the data collection from both expert and non-expert users, there were interview sessions. After collecting data, two different analysis methods were used, namely, analysis for eye movement data of users and analysis for interviews. After organizing and describing the data, this study revealed that users were generally focusing at the center of the screen while using the large multi touch display. In addition, the most common gestures were Tap gesture and Drag gesture which are single touch input gestures. Besides, it was easy to adapt the system by recalling the previous experiences from mobile devices, and to manage the area and interact with two hands thanks to display size. Furthermore, users were satisfied about using the large multi touch display system.

This study explores the design considerations and usability factors of using large multi touch interfaces. In this study, an experimental approach incorporating a large multi touch interface environment was used. End user usability test sessions supported with glasses type eye tracker and interview sessions were conducted. The data were collected from one expert and three non-expert users by implementing a task on a military training application. Two analysis methods were used, analysis for eye movement dat...
Interactive visual user interfaces: A survey
Murtagh, F; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba; Contreras, P; Mothe, J; Englmeier, K (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2003-06-01)
Following a short survey of input data types on which to construct interactive visual user interfaces, we report on a new and recent implementation taking concept hierarchies as input data. The visual user interfaces express domain ontologies which are based on these concept hierarchies. We detail a web-based implementation, and show examples of usage. An appendix surveys related systems, many of them commercial.
Comparison of cognitive modeling and user performance analysis for touch screen mobile interface design
Ocak, Nihan; Çağıltay, Kürşat; Department of Information Systems (2014)
The main aim of this thesis is to analyze and comparatively evaluate the usability of touch screen mobile applications through cognitive modeling and end-user usability testing. The study investigates the accuracy of the estimated results cognitive model produces for touch screen mobile phone interfaces. CogTool application was used as the cognitive modeling method. Turkcell Cüzdan application, which is suitable for the implementation of both methods, was chosen as the mobile application. Based on the feedb...
Performance-based parametric design explorations: A method for generating appropriate building components
Ercan, Burak; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira (2015-05-01)
Performance-based parametric design explorations depend on formulating custom-designed workflows that require reading, writing, interpreting and manipulating databases, as part of the design process. The possibilities of customization and parameterization offered by the user-friendly interfaces of advanced building-performance simulation software and digital design tools have now enabled architects to carry out performance-based design explorations without the help of simulation experts. This paper presents...
Comparison of Cognitive Modeling and User Performance Analysis for Touch Screen Mobile Interface Design
Ocak, Nihan; Çağıltay, Kürşat (Informa UK Limited, 2016-12-23)
The aim of this study is to analyze and comparatively evaluate the usability of touch screen mobile applications through cognitive modeling and end-user usability testing methodologies. The study investigates the accuracy of the estimated results of a cognitive model produced for touch screen mobile phone interfaces. A mobile wallet application was chosen as the mobile software. The CogTool modeling tool was used as the cognitive modeling method. Eight tasks were determined and user tests were conducted in ...
