Abstract

Modern interface devices such as depth field cameras and touch sensitive screen offer new scope for navigation large and complex image data sets. Image sequences from movies or simulations can be treated as hyper-bricks of navigable data. We have implemented an image navigation interface framework that supports a compatible set of both depth-field hand gestures and touch-screen finger movements. We report on how these two apparently disparate interfaces can be combined in a unifying software architecture and explore the human computer interaction space of suitable gestural and touch idioms and metaphors suitable for rapid interactive navigation and rendering of a sequence of images from a simulation, from photographic stills, or frames of a movie. We compare the two sorts of interaction and discuss a descriptive vocabulary for these and suggest some directions for development and use in other bulk data navigation interfaces.

Keywords: image data navigation; gestures; touch screen; HCI
