By Heidi Lam, Tamara Munzner

Exhibiting a number of degrees of knowledge visually has been proposed to handle the problem of constrained reveal area. even though many past empirical experiences have addressed diverse elements of this query, the data visualization study group doesn't presently have a basically articulated consensus on how, while, or maybe if exhibiting facts at a number of degrees is valuable. To shed extra gentle in this advanced subject, we performed a scientific evaluate of twenty-two current multi-level interface reviews to extract high-level layout directions. To facilitate dialogue, we forged our research findings right into a four-point selection tree: (1) while are multi-level screens important? (2) What should still the better visible degrees exhibit? (3) may still the several visible degrees be displayed concurrently, or one after the other? (4) may still the visible degrees be embedded in one exhibit, or separated into a number of monitors? Our research ended in 3 layout directions: (1) the variety of degrees in demonstrate and information should still fit; (2) excessive visible degrees should still purely reveal task-relevant details; (3) simultaneous reveal, instead of temporal switching, is acceptable for projects with multi-level solutions. desk of Contents: creation / Terminology / method / precis of reviews / determination 1: unmarried or Multi-level Interface? / choice 2: tips on how to Create the High-Level screens? / selection three: Simultaneous or Temporal screens of the a number of visible degrees / selection four: find out how to Spatially manage the visible degrees, Embedded or Separate? / boundaries of research / layout innovations / dialogue and destiny paintings

FCScreen] reported that participants kept the temporal view zoomed to 100% magnification for tracing, thus effectively reduced the temporal component of the interface to a single-level display, and used the compound multi-level interface as a separate interface (high-level display plus the temporal display used as a loLevel display). [RubNav ] reported a study on large trees and visual comparison tasks Nekrasovski et al. [2006]. Their high-level view showed an overall tree view and provided task-relevant location cues.
