Abstract

Web applications are abundant and used daily by a variety of people. Planning a trip, for example, has become much easier with Web applications such as Google Maps. Nevertheless, to thoroughly design a personalized trip, the user often needs to manually search for additional information and mentally combine all the information to make many key decisions. To address the need for a comprehensive system, we have designed OnMyWay, a mash up system which effectively incorporates the ability to search points of interest and to assess essential information for designing personalized road trips. This paper presents our task-oriented design for presenting information and supporting user interactions applied to OnMyWay, and provides evaluations of the system's design and usability based on two informal user studies.
