  • Monigatti, Paul; Apperley, Mark; Rogers, Bill (ACM, 2011)
    Meters and gauges based on analogue pointers provide a convenient way to visualise single dimensional data streams, such as speed, voltage, altitude, or fuel level. However, often a small amount of historical information ...
  • Monigatti, Paul; Apperley, Mark; Rogers, Bill (ACM, 2010)
    The paper describes a pilot system for the detailed management of domestic electricity consumption aimed at minimizing demand peaks and consumer cost. Management decisions are made both interactively by consumers themselves, ...
  • Plimmer, Beryl; Apperley, Mark (ACM, 2007)
    Despite well documented advantages, attempts to go truly "paperless" seldom succeed. This is principally because computer-based paperless systems typically do not support all of the affordances of paper, nor the work process ...
  • Apperley, Mark; McLeod, Laurie; Masoodian, Masood; Paine, Lance; Phillips, Malcolm; Rogers, Bill; Thomson, Kirsten (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002)
    This paper reports work done as part of the Large Interactive Display Surface (LIDS) project at the University of Waikato. One application of the LIDS equipment is distributed meeting support. In this context large display ...
  • Plimmer, Beryl; Apperley, Mark; Masoodian, Masood (2002)
    Best practice in interface design suggests that hand-drawn sketches are preferable at the early stages of the design process. This paper describes the FreeForm software which supports informal sketched interface design by ...
  • Plimmer, Beryl; Apperley, Mark (IEEE Computer Society Press, 2002)
    This paper describes the vital role of freehand sketching in the design process. When designers first tackle a design problem they usually do so by sketching. We will explore the essential elements of sketching that make ...
  • Apperley, Mark; Keegan, Te Taka Adrian Gregory; Cunningham, Sally Jo; Witten, Ian H. (Auckland University Press, Auckland, New Zealand, 2002)
    Although any collection of historical newspapers provides a particularly rich and valuable record of events and social and political commentary, the content tends to be difficult to access and extremely time-consuming to ...
  • Apperley, Mark; Jansen, Samuel Thomas; Jeffries, Amos; Masoodian, Masood; McLeod, Laurie; Paine, Lance; Rogers, Bill; Thomson, Kirsten; Voyle, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2002)
    There are various software technologies that allow capture and redelivery of lectures. Most of these technologies however rely on the use of proprietary software, often requiring extra efforts from the lecturer in terms ...
  • Apperley, Mark; Cunningham, Sally Jo; Keegan, Te Taka Adrian Gregory; Witten, Ian H. (2001)
    Niupepa is a collection of 42 newspaper titles published in New Zealand from 1842-1933, comprising a total of 21,000 pages in 1,750 issues. This collection forms a unique historical record of the language of the indigenous ...
  • Apperley, Mark; Masoodian, Masood (2000)
    Large interactive display surfaces have the potential to combine the simplicity, spontaneity and presence of a conventional whiteboard with the convenience, clarity, and archiving and retrieval capabilities of a computer ...
  • Keegan, Te Taka Adrian Gregory; Cunningham, Sally Jo; Apperley, Mark (1999)
    This paper describes the building of a digital library collection of historic newspapers. The newspapers (Niupepa in Maori), which were published in New Zealand during the period 1842 to 1933, form a unique historical ...
  • Apperley, Mark; Spence, Robert; Hodge, Stephen; Chester, Michael (1999)
    Graphic representations of tree structures are notoriously difficult to create, display, and interpret, particularly when the volume of information they contain, and hence the number of nodes, is large. The problem of ...
  • Apperley, Mark; Baker, Jay; Fletcher, Dale; Rogers, Bill (1999)
    Copy and paste, or cut and paste, using a clipboard or paste buffer has long been the principle facility provided to users for transferring data between and within GUI applications. We argue that this mechanism can be ...
  • Witten, Ian H.; McNab, Rodger J.; Jones, Steve; Cunningham, Sally Jo; Bainbridge, David; Apperley, Mark (1999)
    As the capabilities of distributed digital libraries increase, managing organizational and software complexity becomes a key issue. How can collections and indexes be updated without impacting queries currently in progress? ...
  • Witten, Ian H.; McNab, Rodger J.; Jones, Steve; Cunningham, Sally Jo; Bainbridge, David; Apperley, Mark (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1998)
    Managing the organizational and software complexity of a comprehensive digital library presents a significant challenge. Different library collections each have their own distinctive features. Different presentation languages ...
  • Yeo, Alvin; Barbour, Robert H.; Apperley, Mark (1997)
    An exploratory study of software assessment techniques is conducted in Malaysia. Subjects in the study comprised staff members of a Malaysian university with a high Information Technology (IT) presence. The subjects assessed ...

    Computer Supported Co-operative Work (CSCW) systems are complex, yet no computer-based tools of any sophistication exist to support their development. Since several people often need to work together on the same project ...
  • Pearson, Murray W.; Lyons, Paul J.; Apperley, Mark (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1995)
    We present an approach to the design of complex logic ICs, developed from four premises. First, the responsibilities of a chip's major components, and the communication between them, should be separated from the detailed ...
