Human experiments in GraphDrawing, such as the seminal papers of Purchase et al. [1], have concentrated on tasks, such as path-tracing. Here we report the first results in an ongoing series of experiments to investigate the geometric properties of graph drawings that users prefer. The specific experiment described in this poster investigates the impact of edge crossings and stress in straight-line drawings on human preference. Our results suggest a positive preference for drawings with less stress and fewer crossings.
