Digital Tables for Collaborative Information Exploration [chapter]

Petra Isenberg, Uta Hinrichs, Mark Hancock, Sheelagh Carpendale
2010 Tabletops - Horizontal Interactive Displays  
There is great potential for digital tabletop displays to be integrated in tomorrow's work and learning environments, in which the exploration of information is a common task.  ...  We focus on two types of interfaces: those for information exploration and data analysis in the context of workplaces, and those for more casual information exploration in public settings such as museums  ...  Others are the design of appropriate multi-person interaction techniques and gestures for touch-sensitive displays to explore information.  ...
