Our integration platform seeks to help researchers and web designers in more complete analysis of web user interfaces (WUIs). The number of proposed metrics for WUIs (within both code- and image-based analysis) has increased dramatically. Moreover, different publications and services may use different algorithms for calculating a metric of the same name. Thus, by collecting the metrics from many available sources we attempt to:
- increase the fidelity of WUI analysis (more data is better!);
- provide basis for comparing different metrics/algorithms and selecting most relevant ones, for a given target user group and website domain;
- collect data that can be used in training user behavior models.
