Novel approaches for context-based map design adaptation
This project expands on previous research efforts and seeks to evaluate novel approaches for map design transferability and map design adaptation to respond to varying map use situations. The project particularly focusses on techniques to model map use situations (i.e., map use context) and analyzes methods to dynamically evaluate the usability of the transferred and adapted map design choices. The project further aims to evaluate ways to identify what are relevant aspects of map use situations that define what constitute differences between map use situations. Through empirical studies, the project aims to evaluate a coherent methodology, integrating traditional and dynamic usability and interactivity evaluation methods to analyze the adaptation of the map design, modeling techniques of map use context, and adaptive strategies to respond to the context of map users with the map design.
