Interaction Design and Information Visualization for Wall-Size Displays with User Tracking

 

Specialeforsvar ved Thomas Sidor

ABSTRACT:

The use of wall-size displays are becoming increasingly popular due to declining prices and high availability. However, many questions about how to  effectively interact with and utilize wall-size displays still exist. Based on insight from the literature I have developed a novel interaction technique and tailored information visualization for wall-size displays. The technique utilizes users' embodied resources such as opportunity of physical navigation and increased peripheral vision. The user is tracked relative tothe display and her position and movement are used as primary method of interaction. Results of a empirical study comparing two approaches to physical navigation with a gyroscopic mouse show no significant difference between the approaches in terms of efficiency, accuracy or satisfaction.

Analysis suggest that technical issues with the implementation hindered the two user tracking approaches from exploiting their full potential.
