Below is an example of a FLUD visualization. Here is some of the
information that can be immediately derived from it.
The test session began on Nov 30, 2000 at about 2:33pm. The subject's
name was Patti Smith. The entire session lasted 849 seconds.
The subject attempted two tasks, named "Find Index" and
"Buy Sweater". The first task began about 50 seconds into
the session and ended a little over 400 seconds into the session.
The second ran from about 510 to 840 seconds (relative time).
Event activity was generally constant throughout, although
there were no events recorded during the last 30-40 seconds of
the first task.
The graph shows many more window closings than openings. It is
not clear why the FLUD file shows this. Perhaps the process
that recorded the user interaction
failed to record window openings under some condition.
The subject had two browser windows open during most of the session.
The first one (named "new_win") was fairly active - a new page was
brought into the window every 20 seconds or so on average
and sometimes far more often.
The second window ("main") was much less active. It was opened after
about 120 seconds and only 4 pages were shown in it, the 2nd and 4th
It should be emphasized that more information is available when
interacting with the visualization. Various time periods can be
inspected more closely, the details of the events and windows
can be inspected, and so on. This example is meant just to give
a general idea of how FLUDViz works.
