Focus Plus Context Screen: Displays for Users Working with Large Visual Documents

Video presentation from the 2002 CHI conference. Users working with documents that are too large and detailed to fit the userÕs screen (e.g. chip designs) have the choice of zooming or applying appropriate visualization techniques. In this demonstration, we will present focus plus context screensÑwall-size low-resolution displays with an embedded high-resolution display region. They allow users to view details of a document up close, while simultaneously seeing peripheral parts of the document in lower resolution. Unlike overview plus detail, focus plus context screens do not require users to visually switch between multiple views. Unlike fisheye views, focus plus context screens do not introduce distortion.
