Analyzing Visual Clutter In Maps With Software

A team of scientists at MIT have developed a software tool designed to analyze “visual clutter” in graphic images. The example given in the press release compares the tool’s analysis of visual clutter in maps of the US and San Francisco with that of 20 people, and they found a good correlation between human and software clutter metrics. The software is free for download and use, but requires MATLAB to run (which I don’t have, so I can’t test it out).
