Abstract : In this dissertation, I explore four initial challenges an online user may encounter when confronted with an information visualization website. The main research question I address is: how might these challenges limit people’s engagement in efficient explorations of data, and how might these limitations be remedied? I define the four challenges in terms of subcosts of van Wijk’s perception and exploration costs; these are: 1) a literacy cost, 2) a context interpretation cost, 3) a perceived interactivity cost, and 4) an initial incentive for exploration cost. For each, I propose either a way to assess or a method to help overcome the sub-cost. I also investigate whether popular techniques recommended for making visualizations engaging outside of purely analytical contexts can lead online users to explore data.
