Large Display Research: New Opportunities for Visualization and Interaction
Our early user studies documenting the increased productivity gained through the use of large displays allowed us to observe quite quickly that Windows and current applications do not scale well when vast amounts of screen real estate are available. Our group therefore set about iteratively designing software tools, based on real user problems, to support large-scale navigation and interaction. To ensure our software user interfaces provided value, we ran user studies against existing features and performed user-centered design. This talk will provide an overview of the prototypes we designed, and our methodology. In addition, I will discuss a few areas of long-term basic research on information visualization and interaction, and our attempts to scale the user experience across the spectrum of large and smaller displays.
