SkyView: a user evaluation of the skyline operator
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of the ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM), 2013, 2249-2254 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The skyline operator has recently emerged as an alternative to ranking queries and retrieves a number of potential best options for arbitrary monotone preference functions. The success of this operator in the database community is based on the belief that users benefit from the limited effort required to specify skyline queries with respect to, for instance, ranking. However, while application examples exist and research on efficient computation in a variety of settings abounds, there exists no principled analysis of its benefits and limitations in data retrieval tasks. Our study investigates the degree to which users understand skyline queries, how they specify query parameters and how they interact with skyline results made available in listings or map-based interfaces.
