Streeb, Dirk: W. Aigner [2011]: Understanding the Role and Value of Interaction: First Steps isbn:978-3-905673-82-1 - 18.03.18 12:33 (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 3.1 Reducing the information processing distance between the user’s intentions and the facilities provided by the machine, makes the interface feel more direct by reducing the effort required by the user to accomplish goals.
Streeb, Dirk: D. Kirsh [2010]: Thinking with External Representations doi:10.1007/s00146-010-0272-8 - 12.03.18 12:35 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 442 Cognitive processes flow to wherever it is cheaper to perform them.
Streeb, Dirk: S. D. Lathrop, S. Wintermute and J. E. Laird [2011]: Exploring the Functional Advantages of Spatial and Visual Cognition From an Architectural Perspective doi:10.1111/j.1756-8765.2010.01130.x - 10.03.18 10:42 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 799 Even if equivalent information is present in each representation, processing efficiency may vary across them.
Streeb, Dirk: M. Chen and A. Golan [2016]: What May Visualization Processes Optimize? doi:10.1109/TVCG.2015.2513410 - 04.03.18 10:31 (+) Positive One or more subsections sec. 5.2 The binary digits view thereby incurs a huge cost at the feature recognition step, while bringing lower benefit. This mathematically explains the merits of time series plot over a spatially-compact binary digits view.
