Abstract

Over the last years an increased interest in the use of the space-time cube to visualize movement data can be witnessed. However, little is known if the cube is truly efficient, and effective to satisfactory display complex movement datasets. Limited usability research has been done. This paper discussed the setup of an extensive usability evaluation of the space-time cube, based on four different use cases in varying complexity. The approach is characterized by early involvement of domain experts, which have provided the data and problems to be solved. The role of the domain expert is seen crucial and resulted in workflows or visualization strategies. Specific design guideline based on the cartographic theories, while considering depth cues have been applied to the space-time cube’s content.
