Traditional methods of evaluating the usability of software systems largely ignore the problem of navigation within computer based environments. In contrast the 'Navigation of Information Space' paradigm (Benyon and Höök, 1997) places the navigability of the system as central. In order to make the ideas of navigation available to system developers, we have produced a method of evaluation called ISEN (Information Space: Evaluating Navigation). This demonstration will show how the software version of the method can be used and how it provides a complementary approach to the evaluation of user-system interaction
