Evaluation Measures of Web Maps and Their Application

ZHANG Xueying,SHEN Qijun,LONG Yi(Key Laboratory of Virtual Geographical Environment(Nanjing Normal University),Ministry of Education,Nanjing 210046,China)  
A web map is a web-based service on the Internet that provides maps for users to search and browse spatial information,such as place locations and routes.With the increasing development of Internet,web maps have become popular on the Web due to their convenience,low cost,and dynamic characteristics.The evaluation of web maps is useful to improve the services of web maps and their popularization.The previous methods considered only parts elements.Moreover,it is difficult to quantitatively compute the performance of web maps with them.To overcome these problems,this paper discusses four hierarchical elements correlated to the performance of web maps.Based on the assumption,an evaluation system with the definition of 39 measures is proposed,and then the quantitative and qualitative evaluation approaches are described.Finally,nine Chinese web maps such as MAPbar、MAPabc、Baidu、51map、Google Map、Microsoft Live search、Sougou、Aiwen、Yahoo are analyzed with these measures.The results indicate that 51map achieves the best performance,Google map provides the best interface but with lower performance because of the shortage of data.In conclusion,there are still many problems in Chinese web maps,especially standardization of named places,natural language search,and incompletion of map data etc.
