A Study of Users’ Image Seeking Behaviour in FlickLing
This study aims to explore users’ image seeking behaviour when searching for a known, non-annotated image in the FlickLing search interface provided by iCLEF2008 track. The main focus of our study was threefold: a) to identify the reasons that determined users’ choice of a specific interface mode, b) to examine whether users were thinking about languages when searching for images and to what extent and c) to examine if used, how helpful the translations proved to be for finding the images. This study used questionnaires, retrospective thinking aloud, observation and interviews to meet its research questions.
