Human-Computer Interaction

From Humanitarian Computing Library

Summary Human–computer Interaction (HCI) involves the study, planning, and design of the interaction between people (users) and computers.

Papers under this topic usually focus on describing issues of how people interact with a computer system, visualization aspects to improve this interaction, user experience design/evaluation in software tools, etc.

HCI is quickly becoming the focus of a number of publications on humanitarian computing. In time-sensitive environments such as disaster management, decision-making often requires rapidly gathering information from diverse data sources and visualizing the collected information to understand it. An improper visualization of the data could result in users wasting precious time to understand the data.

Examples: This 2010 paper "Building Geospatial Mashups to Visualize Information for Crisis Management" introduces a programming-by-demonstration approach to data visualization in geospatial mashups that allows the users to customize the data visualization. This is an example of a paper that shows how HCI can be used in humanitarian computing to better help people.

"An Upstream Downstream..." on the other hand is a 2012 paper that describes four phases of user centered information systems' design to support disaster management and provides a case study of using this approach in action to design an Information System (IS) to enhance community resilience.

Yet there are other papers that introduce ways to improving already existing HCI. An example to this is "Interaction Design for Web Emergency Management Information Systems", a paper that contributes to improve the designing of the human computer interfaces and human computer interaction for supporting fire fighters during fire emergency response.

Guidelines Publications that include Human Computer Interface (HCI) aspects, interaction design, user experience, visualization, etc.
