1 USeD - Usability Service enhancements to Digimap An Introduction Addy Pope 2011

2 What is USeD USeD aims to improve the usability and learnability of a widely used research tool that provides access to valuable geospatial research data – specifically the data download of Ordnance Survey data from the JISC funded Digimap service.

3 What Select 1 data product from a choice of 16 Define area Pick data tiles Define delivery format Stats: 48,000+ Digimap users 74,000 data requests* 1,000,000 data tiles served* * Based on Jan 2010 – Jan 2011 Stats: 48,000+ Digimap users 74,000 data requests* 1,000,000 data tiles served* * Based on Jan 2010 – Jan 2011

4 Why Issues with the existing system include: current interface infers familiarity with OS products cannot download more than one dataset at a time cannot save user preferences focused on data delivery issues rather than user requirements fails to address differences in users spatial literacy. Too hard to use – Geography and Environment student Too hard to use – Geography and Environment student I find it a bit complicated – Engineering postgraduate I find it a bit complicated – Engineering postgraduate Really like the system but find it hard to navigate around – Architecture postgraduate Really like the system but find it hard to navigate around – Architecture postgraduate

5 How Investigate current use of service and extract a number of typical user personas Use personas to design enhanced interface and work flow process Run user testing on new interface (iterative) Feed output of project into the Digimap data downloader Personas: Should describe the main user groups from beginner to expert Persona profiling based on: User engagement / User interface analysis Existing download database logs Personas: Should describe the main user groups from beginner to expert Persona profiling based on: User engagement / User interface analysis Existing download database logs
