Redefining the Focus and Context of Focus+Context Visualisation

By Staffan Björk and Johan Redström


The increasing diversity of computers, especially among small mobile devices such as mobile phones and PDAs, raise new questions about information visualization techniques developed for the desktop computer. Using a series of examples ranging from applications for ordinary desktop displays to web-browsers and other applications for PDAs, we describe how a focus+context technique, Flip Zooming, is changed due to the situation it is used in. Based on these examples, we discuss how the use of “focus ” and “context” in focus+context techniques change in order to fit new areas of use for information visualization. By doing so, we hope to enrich the understanding of how focus+context techniques as a whole may be further developed
