Multimodal comprehension of language and graphics Graphs with and without annotations

An experimental investigation into interaction between language and information graphics in multimodal documents served as the basis for this study. More specifically, our purpose was to investigate the role of linguistic annotations in graph-text documents. Participants were presented with three newspaper articles in the following conditions: one text-only, one text plus non-annotated graph, and one text plus annotated graph. Results of the experiment showed that, on one hand, annotations play a bridging role for integration of information contributed by different representational modalities. On the other hand, linguistic annotations have negative effects on recall, possibly due to attention divided by the different parts of a document.

Multipath Characteristics of Frequency Diverse Arrays Over a Ground Plane
Cetintepe, Cagri; Demir, Şimşek (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-07-01)
This paper presents a theoretical framework for an analytical investigation of multipath characteristics of frequency diverse arrays (FDAs), a task which is attempted for the first time in the open literature. In particular, transmitted field expressions are formulated for an FDA over a perfectly conducting ground plane first in a general analytical form, and these expressions are later simplified under reasonable assumptions. Developed formulation is then applied to a uniform, linear, continuous-wave opera...
Usability Problem Reports for Comparative Studies: Consistency and Inspectability
Vermeeren, Arnold P. O. S.; Attema, Jelle; Akar, Evren; de Ridder, Huib; van Doorn, Andrea J.; Erbuğ, Çiğdem; Berkman, Ali E.; Maguire, Martin C. (2008-01-01)
This study explores issues of consistency and inspectability in usability test data analysis processes and reports. Problem reports resulting from usability tests performed by three professional usability labs in three different countries are compared. Each of the labs conducted a usability test on the same product, applying an agreed test protocol that was collaboratively developed by the labs. Each lab first analyzed their own findings as they always do in their regular professional practice. A few weeks ...
Multi-perspective analysis and systematic benchmarking for binary-classification performance evaluation instruments
Canbek, Gürol; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba; Department of Information Systems (2019)
This thesis proposes novel methods to analyze and benchmark binary-classification performance evaluation instruments. It addresses critical problems found in the literature, clarifies terminology and distinguishes instruments as measure, metric, and as a new category indicator for the first time. The multi-perspective analysis introduces novel concepts such as canonical form, geometry, duality, complementation, dependency, and leveling with formal definitions as well as two new basic instruments. An indicat...
Integration of geophysical - geological data using geographic information systems
Şirinyıldız, Tunç; Toprak, Vedat; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2003)
This study attempts to integrate geophysical data with other spatial data using Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The study is carried out in a part of Galatean Volcanic Province, north of Ankara. Gravity, magnetic, topographic, rock type and volcanic eruption center data are the data layers used in the study. All data layers are converted to raster format with a grid spacing of 100 m. The first step in the analysis is the pair-wise analyses of all data layers. For the geophysical data, different layers...
Framing Open Design through Theoretical Concepts and Practical Applications: A Systematic Literature Review
Bakırlıoğlu, Yekta; Kohtala, Cindy (2019-09-01)
This study reports on the results of a systematic literature review on 'open design' in academic fields including and beyond design and HCI. The review investigates how studies are framed as open design and open-source design (including 'open hardware'): how researchers contribute to conceptual theorizing about open design or study its practical operationalization, in do-it-yourself 'making,' manufacturing and practices in-between these domains. Most of the papers reviewed were empirical studies from divers...
