Approaches to Interface Icon Classification

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientific

    Abstract

    Various attempts have been made at creating a classification for user interface icons, with some focusing on their pictorial presentation, and others on the signs’ relation to their intended meaning. This paper provides a review of the existing classification systems, and discusses their strengths and weaknesses. Based on this review, we then propose an alternative practical approach to icon classification, which is aimed towards designers of user interface icons rather than the research community, and evaluate its usability based on data gathered from two online surveys.
