Traditional methods of usability evaluation ignore some aspects related to navigation. In contrast the navigation in information space paradigm sees the user as situated within the space. The ENiSpace (Evaluating Navigation in Information Space) system builds on a paper based checklist to support designers in addressing navigational issues. The software version also includes reporting features, supporting documentation and references the aim being to inform design as well as to provide a method of evaluation. The current version consists primarily of the checklist, however the completed version will include collaborative evaluation features via an internet server
