Where in the world: a study of user preferences as to virtual environments for information access.

MacLennan, Alan

Authors



Abstract

This paper deals with the examination of user preferences relating to 3-dimensional “virtual worlds” as an interface for accessing information. The study on which the paper is based came about when it was decided that an initial attempt to establish user preferences amongst three “world” models was flawed, insofar as there was no good rationale for the selection of the three models offered. An examination of the literature felt to be relevant to the topic revealed that very little, if any, user-centred testing had been done in regard to the design of this type of interface, user input generally having been limited to performance-related issues subsequent to the implementation of the interfaces.
