Abstract

In this paper, the focus is on the concept of Usability Engineering for GIS - a set of techniques and methods that are especially suitable for evaluating the usability of GIS applications - which can he deployed as part of the development process. To demonstrate how the framework of Usability Engineering for GIS can be used in reality, a screenshot study is described. Users were asked to provide a screenshot of their GIS during, their working day. The study shows how, a simple technique can help in understanding the way GIS is used in situ.
