Psych 101: The Psychological Basis for UI Design Rules
Jeff Johnson, UI Wizards

UI design rules are not simple recipes to be applied mindlessly. Applying
them effectively requires determining their applicability—and
precedence—in specific situations. It also requires balancing the
trade-offs that inevitably arise in situations when design rules appear to
contradict each other.

Examples of Maps/Navigation for 3D7

Some areas that 3-D map navigation can be useful:

Look to GIS for ideas and research...

Realistic 3-D portrayal of buildings on map:
1. Emergency response preparation -- for example fire fighters checking 3-D
maps of area as they approach a fire to decide best way to approach
2. Urban/transportation planning -- trouble shooting of designs, for
example: impact of project's height on surrounding neighborhood --
shadowing, sight line obstruction etc.

Recommendations for getting people to give their postal code

I have a quiz where people fill out 15+ questions to find out what kind of traveller they are. My client would like to ask them for their postal code, so that they can ultimately send people information and offers that are customized to their traveller type and location. They would also like the postal code to validate the geo segmentation research about the traveller type differences by location.

Quiz respondents are not asked for their full mailing address. They have an option to opt in to receive further information by providing an eMail address.

Half-day courses on Ajax and Card Sorting at HCI 2009 in Cambridge UK

(IxDA members within striking distance of Cambridge in the UK might be interested in the following.)

There are still places on the two half-day courses I am running at the British HCI Group conference in Cambridge on 1 September. They are 'Ajax Design and Usability' (how to get the most from dynamic web pages) and 'Innovations in Card Sorting', a hands-on workshop using examples from real web sites.

They are only £40 each, plus this year - for the first time - you do not have to register for the conference itself.
