Volcanic hazard map visualisation affects cognition and crisis decision-making

•  Volcanic hazard map style affects visual attention, cognition, and decision-making.

•  Simple tasks help guide attention to hazard maps at early, uncertain event stages.

•  High risk perception is associated with limited visual attention to hazard maps.

•  Integrated hazard visualisations engage early attention and high-level processing.

•  Discrete hazard footprints encourage deliberative processing and correct inferences.
