Which path and how fast? The effect of flight time and path on user understanding in 3-D fly-over animations

Which path and how fast? The effect of flight time and path on user understanding in 3-D fly-over animations
3-D fly-over animations offer a potentially powerful technique to communicate geographical data and concepts. However, there is little in the literature concerning how they are understood by viewers. In this study the effects of flight travel time and flight path around a landscape on user understanding are tested on a special case of 3-D fly-overs: 'map tours'. Results prove that being able to see an overview of the landscape during a map tour is important for user understanding but the effects on tilting and flight travel time are less conclusive. Implications of the results to designing effective 3-D fly-over animations are discussed.

Abstract

3-D fly-over animations offer a potentially powerful technique to communicate geographical data and concepts. However, there is little in the literature concerning how they are understood by viewers. In this study the effects of flight travel time and flight path around a landscape on user understanding are tested on a special case of 3-D fly-overs: 'map tours'. Results prove that being able to see an overview of the landscape during a map tour is important for user understanding but the effects on tilting and flight travel time are less conclusive. Implications of the results to designing effective 3-D fly-over animations are discussed.
