Every User His Visualization? User Performance and Preferences of Different Hierarchical Layouts
Lately, more studies have started to look into adapting information visualization to individual users. This paper adds to those studies by analysing whether gender, field of study, and experience influenced user performance and preference in four different hierarchical layouts. The results show that, generally, the three factors did not show significant differences between layouts, but also revealed some interesting indications for further studies.
