MACOORA Usability Test

In August 2008, a team of COSEE NOW members collaborated with Cia Romano, the founder and CEO of Interface Guru, to conduct a website usability test with a group of tuna fishermen and women to better understand how ocean observatory data can be communicated via Web-based visualization displays such as maps, charts and other data sources.

This work was done to support the mission of MACOORA and COSEE NOW. Our main goals were to learn:

  1. the fundamentals of website usability testing and
  2. to use the results of the test to improve visualization and navigation of data displays for MACOORA member institutions, including COSEE NOW.
