Zooming versus multiple window interfaces

Matthew D. Plumlee, Colin Ware
2006 ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction  
A critical factor embodied in this model is the limited capacity of visual working memory, allowing for the cost of visits via fixating eye movements to be compared to the cost of visits that require user  ...  Finally we propose a design heuristic: extra windows are needed when visual comparisons must be made involving patterns of a greater complexity than can be held in visual working memory.  ...  A major unknown is the overhead cost of setting up a zoom versus the overhead cost involved in setting up extra windows.  ...

2008 ACM Computing Surveys  
The aim is to provide a succinct summary of the state-of-the-art, to illuminate successful and unsuccessful interface strategies, and to identify potentially fruitful areas for further work.  ...  ________________________________________________________________________ There are many interface schemes that allow users to work at, and move between, focused and contextual views of a data set.  ...  Single versus multiple foci Understanding overview+detail In directly comparing overview+detail and zooming interfaces, Ghosh and Shneiderman (1999) analysed task completion times for tasks that involved  ...

A Guide to Visual Multi-Level Interface Design From Synthesis of Empirical Study Evidence

Heidi Lam, Tamara Munzner
2010 Synthesis Lectures on Visualization  
Displaying multiple levels of data visually has been proposed to address the challenge of limited screen space.  ...  We review 22 existing multi-level interface studies and cast findings into a fourpoint decision tree: (1) When are multi-level displays useful? (2) What should the higher visual levels display?  ...  We also appreciate the suggestions of the anonymous reviewers.  ...

Guidelines for using multiple views in information visualization

Michelle Q. Wang Baldonado, Allison Woodruff, Allan Kuchinsky
2000 Proceedings of the working conference on Advanced visual interfaces - AVI '00  
Based on a workshop discussion of multiple views, and based on our own design and implementation experience with these systems, we present eight guidelines for the design of multiple view systems.  ...  A multiple view system uses two or more distinct views to support the investigation of a single conceptual entity.  ...  If the designer does decide a multiple view system is warranted, they incur a number of costs, e.g., cognitive overhead on the user.  ...

View projection animation for occlusion reduction

Niklas Elmqvist, Philippas Tsigas
2006 Proceedings of the working conference on Advanced visual interfaces - AVI '06  
Inter-object occlusion is inherent to 3D environments and is one of the challenges of using 3D instead of 2D computer graphics for information visualization.  ...  We have also implemented a prototype of the technique in the Blender 3D modeller.  ...  Acknowledgments Many thanks to the developers of the Blender project for their help on integrating the technique into the Blender3D modeller.  ...

3D User Interfaces: New Directions and Perspectives

D.A. Bowman, S. Coquillart, B. Froehlich, M. Hirose, Y. Kitamura, K. Kiyokawa, W. Stuerzlinger
2008 IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications  
In this article, the founders and organizers of the IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces reflect on the current state-of-the-art in several key aspects of 3D UIs, and speculate on future research directions  ...  Three-dimensional user interfaces (3D UIs) allow users to interact with virtual objects, environments, or information using direct 3D input in the physical and/or virtual space.  ...  Doug Bowman acknowledges the contributions of his graduate students (Ryan McMahan, Regis Kopper, Mara Silva, Tao Ni, and Yi Wang) and his colleagues in the 3D UI community to the ideas in this article.  ...

Web Site Interface Design: External and Internal Factors [chapter]

Ahmed Mahfouz
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A well-designed user interface can overcome some of these limitations and aid customers in their search of products and services.  ...  This paper examines both the internal (to the web design) and external (to the user's environment) factors that affect user interface design on the World Wide Web.  ...  The learning style will affect how novice (versus expert) users learn and adapt to a new interface, and how they deal with its functionality.  ...

Supporting Novice to Expert Transitions in User Interfaces

Andy Cockburn, Carl Gutwin, Joey Scarr, Sylvain Malacria
2014 ACM Computing Surveys  
The richness and power of human perception, cognition, and motor action is constrained by standard GUI mechanisms such as visual search and direct manipulation, which are easy to understand but that force  ...  Furthermore, recent interface releases have tended to reduce the visibility of expert methods for interaction-for example, many hotkeys available in Microsoft Word have no visual depiction at all (e.g.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work was partially funded by Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden Grant 10-UOC-020.  ...

Improving photo searching interfaces for small-screen mobile computers

Dynal Patel, Gary Marsden, Matt Jones, Steve Jones
2006 Proceedings of the 8th conference on Human-computer interaction with mobile devices and services - MobileHCI '06  
In light of this, we conclude by discussing how photo searching interfaces might embody or support such an approach.  ...  We describe a prototype system that allows us to expose many issues that must be considered when designing photo searching interfaces.  ...  Participants also reported lower levels of physical and cognitive effort and frustration with the new techniques in comparison to the thumbnail grid browser.  ...

Pixel-based reverse engineering of graphical interfaces

Morgan Dixon
2013 Proceedings of the adjunct publication of the 26th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology - UIST '13 Adjunct  
Any single company or group of developers cannot single-handedly address people's wide variety of needs, but unlocking existing interfaces could diffuse the cost and effort across many people.  ...  As a result, most of today's interfaces require an immense amount of resources to address the increasingly complex ecosystem of devices and users.  ...  A comparison of how developers use our methods versus state-of-the-art tools.  ...

Future multimedia user interfaces

Blair MacIntyre, Steven Feiner
1996 Multimedia Systems  
While mouse and window-based user interfaces provide access to 2D graphics, video, and sound, virtual environments not only involve interactive 3D graphics, but further address all our senses through the  ...  We provide an overview of two emerging areas of user-interface research that will play major roles in future multimedia systems: virtual environments and ubiquitous computing.  ...  While this is a relatively small amount of information in comparison with digital video, its latency requirements are much stricter if multiple users are to interact effectively with each other.  ...

The cost of display switching

Umar Rashid, Miguel A. Nacenta, Aaron Quigley
2012 Proceedings of the International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces - AVI '12  
After conducting a detailed analysis of the performance differences across different UI configurations, we give recommendations for the design of distributed user interfaces.  ...  Experimental results show that a hybrid configuration where visual output is distributed across displays is worst or equivalent to worst in all tasks.  ...  The necessary mapping operation between the two visual representations might have an added cognitive cost.  ...

A comparison of set-based and graph-based visualisations of overlapping classification hierarchies

Martin Graham, Jessie B. Kennedy, Chris Hand
2000 Proceedings of the working conference on Advanced visual interfaces - AVI '00  
However, at present, support for visualising the correlations between multiple, overlapping sets of hierarchical information has been lacking.  ...  The visualisation of hierarchical information sets has been a staple of Information Visualisation since the field came into being in the early 1990's.  ...  The second prototype also avoids the visual clutter of the first prototype at the cost of losing a level of detail.  ...
