Abstract

In this paper, the AA. empirically investigate the relationship of thematic relevance and perceptual salience in static weather map displays. They are particularly interested in how novices'viewing patterns are modified when thematically relevant items are made perceptually more salient through design. In essence, they are asking whether perceptually salient elements draw novice viewers'attention to thematically relevant information, whether or not users have domain knowledge. The eye-movement patterns and their impacts on viewing behavior and response time are also studied. The findings provide rare empirical evidence for generally accepted design practices within the cartographic community (e.g., the effects of visual variables)
