Photi : a fisheye view of bubbles
Fisheye views have recently been employed in a number of application domains to enhance user benefits from graphically presented information. These techniques employ transformations which emphasize regions of interest while suppressing, but retaining, global detail. Applications to date have concentrated on the production of msthetically pleasing views of essentially static objects such as digraphs. In this paper I investigate the extension of the concepts to interactive applications. The implementation of Photi, a diagramming tool for Smith's database schema design technique, is used as an example.
