Screen Real Estate Evaluation Tools

Does anyone know of any tools available for identifying and analyzing screen
real estate for web sites? I'm looking for something similar to the screen
real estate bareak downs found in Jakob Nielsens book "Homepage Usability:
50 Websites Deconstructed". We are working toward a redesign of our
university website and would like to see what percentage of space our peers
are devoting to navigation, search, recent news, etc.

I am currently using screen caputres and Illustrator (doing the percentages
in my head). Ouch.

Chat link

At the risk of reopening the Twitter vs. IRC discussion, I'd like to
mention that Jeff Howard has been kind enough to set up a link to the
IxDA chat channel:


This link currently redirects to our #ixda channel on Freenode, but in
the future it might go somewhere else. The point is that if you want
to chat with other IxDA members in real time, that's the place to go.
Please consider including that link in Tweets or emails to the list as
an indication that you'd like to chat about your topic.

Siegel of Dray & Associates for nearly twenty years. They are incredibly
experienced with international usability research and have been teaching
about it at CHI and UPA for as long as I know them.

Resources/articles on UX for next gen automotiveinterfaces

Alicia -

Just for your interest, when I first got involved in card sorting I came
across a paper from a research team at an automotive manufacturer. They
had used card sorting in a big way to get people to say what dashboard
components and controls ought to be grouped together.
