Abstract:
User interfaces of mobile maps on mobile and tablet devices with a touch screen interfaces is evaluated in this study. A four-way factorial experiment compares the user interface satisfaction for two mobile touch devices (iPad/iPhone), two map types (Electronic Map/Mixed Map), two keyword searches (Landmark/District), and Chinese input methods (Hand-written/Phonetic notation). The experiment used forty-eight participants, each of whom was assigned three types of environmental spatial tasks: find targets, identify cardinal directions, and identify approximate distances. The individual differences between gender, the possession of a sense of direction and route knowledge on user’s satisfaction were also examined. The results of the study verify that both the reliability and confirmative factor analysis model of the questionnaire for user interface satisfaction are good enough. In addition, the two-factor interactions and the main effects: Type, Keyword, and Input significantly affect the degree of user satisfaction.
