Over the past few months, the ESIP Usability Cluster has been exploring usability principles and discussing how User Interface (UI)/ User Experience (UX) evaluation techniques can be employed to enhance Earth science data repositories. The Usability Cluster would like to host a session at the ESIP Winter Meeting demonstrating three different UI/UX evaluation techniques: cognitive walkthrough, usability testing, and heuristic evaluation, with respect to real-life data repository interfaces/services. Three different repository interfaces will be evaluated during the session, one for each UI/UX technique, to show that these techniques can yield immediate results without being overly time consuming or burdensome. We will finish with a discussion of how wireframes can be used to communicate evaluation feedback to developers and for additional quick and easy usability testing before implementing any changes to a live system.
