SHriMP Views: An Interactive Environment for Information Visualization and Navigation

Video presentation from the 2002 CHI conference. The SHriMP (Simple Hierarchical Multi-Perspective) visualization technique was designed to enhance how people browse and explore complex information spaces. SHriMP uses a nested graph view to present information that is hierarchically structured. It introduces the concept of nested interchangeable views to allow a user to explore multiple perspectives of information at different levels of abstraction. SHriMP combines a hypertext following metaphor with animated panning and zooming motions over the nested graph to provide continuous orientation and contextual cues for the user. In this demo, we show how these ideas are proving useful in the areas of software visualization, knowledge management and flow diagram visualization. knowledge engineering and flow diagram visualization. SHriMP has been designed using the Javabean component technology to enable easier customization and integration with other tools.
