Economic indicators provide much information concerning the functioning of an enterprise. Their usefulness depends also on decision-makers' comprehension of structural and semantic connections existing between indicators. Visualization of a semantic network in the topic map allows users to more swiftly notice and understand various relations. The main goal of this paper is to discuss the research on heuristic evaluation of visualization in the semantic searching for economic information. This study consists of three experiments with the participants. We used the two author’s applications of the ontologies for return on investment indicator and for early warning system. In this paper we analyze and compare the results of these experiments.
