In the SPEEDD project, we are developing approaches to the design and evaluation of Visual Analytics which are informed by Human Factors theories and methods. As part of this process, we are using the concept of Allocation of Function to inform the design of User Interfaces for Visual Analytics. The paper presents a case study of the development of a Road Traffic Management User Interface.
