Usability has become an important issue for improving web design. However, specific studies on determining elements for geo-web usability are almost non-existent. Therefore, this paper describes our first approach to uncover the main elements of geo-web-usability. Three main elements have been identified as critical for usability; they are web content, human-computer interaction, and user satisfaction. A study was carried out on the Portal for cultural heritage in the Netherlands to measure them. For this study, four sections of the geo-web interface were used for testing purposes: map display, table of content, basic functionalities and query.
