Abstract:Dashboard is a visual environment that is able to display all kindof data, including origin-destination (OD) data. Most of current dashboards were failedto communicate effectively and efficientlyin terms of exploration. An adaptive featurefor dashboardwasproposedin this researchto increase the exploration ability.The adaptive feature enabled a dashboard to change its visualisation according to users’ queries.The aim of this study was to design an adaptive dashboard that is able to exploreand to getinsights on temporal OD dataeffectively. Peuquet triad framework was used as starting point. Temporal concept frameworkwasusedto determine user tasks, data framework, and visualisation framework.Space, attribute, and time components ofSchiphol airport were used as data framework. Based on user tasks and data framework, a two-in-one dashboard was designed and constructed.It consists of general non adaptive dashboard and adaptive dashboard with multiple-page approach. The delivered dashboard prototype was evaluated using a combination of task analysis, eye tracking, screen logging, video/sound recording, and interview.The adaptive dashboard prototype was able to perform exploration on temporal OD data. However,afterconducting anevaluationto the dashboard,it was discovered that the prototype was not as effectiveand efficientas it was expected. Adaptive feature using multiple-page approach did not work well in terms of effective and efficient exploration.It is recommended to focus on a single-page approach for future study about adaptive dashboard
