BCMS Honours Topic: "What do people look at in mobile map applications?"
I am conducting an investigation into what users look at when using Google Maps. We will be considering the impact of map size, presence of map controls and the user's focus during drag, zoom and pan operations. To do this we will be using eye motion tracking software to capture and record users' eye gaze whilst carrying out a series of standard tasks. Once the standard behavior has been established we will introduce different types of markers for off-screen targets and analyze their impact on user's eye gaze.
