Will someone please define the tag? It's not self explanatory.

(((Hmmm, looks like I need to add an extra sentence to allow the question to be posted. Let's see if this is enough.)))

Over at stack overflow ux is a synonym of user-experience, perhaps we should adopt the same here to avoid confusion in the future. stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/user-experience –  Andy W Oct 13 '11 at 12:15

The problem with "ux" is that very few people would think to type it when trying to tag a relevant question. To help with that, I created a "userexperience" synonym. Although it's long, it will cause the "ux" tag to be raised as a suggestion whenever anybody starts typing a tag beginning with "us...". Try it!

Not to be confused with Un*x, or one of its flavors - HP-UX. –  Kirk Kuykendall Oct 14 '11 at 15:56

Just noticed this site http://ux.stackexchange.com/

Given the way the general public embraced web maps once the neogeographers made them slippy, I think this is an important tag.

I highly recommend the UX-SE site. Most GIS people are clued up around map design, but I have had some great inspiration around GIS application design from reading UX-SE. –  Simon Oct 24 '11 at 9:51

Click on the Tags link under the Geographic Information Systems meta header line, then search on ux which reveals "about how a person feels about using a product, system or service." That is all I could find ... but I have no clue if that is good or bad (aka uch or yuck or equivalent gutteral expression)

Hi Dan, that's because someone filled out the tag info, it used be empty. They just neglected to say anything here to indicate the request had been fulfilled. –  matt wilkie Oct 12 '11 at 20:21

@Matt, for the interim, perhaps we can go with my gutteral expression suggestion :) –  Dan Patterson Oct 12 '11 at 21:15
