Abstract

In visualization systems it is often the case that thechanges of the input parameters are not proportional to the visualchange of the generated output. In this paper, we propose a model forenabling data-sensitive navigation for user-interface elements. Thismodel is applied to normalize the user input according to the visualchange, and also to visually communicate this normalization. In thisway, the exploration of heterogeneous data using common interactionelements can be performed in an efficient way. We apply our model to thefield of medical visualization and present guided navigation tools fortraversing vascular structures and for camera rotation around 3Dvolumes. The presented examples demonstrate that the model scales touser-interface elements where multiple parameters are setsimultaneously.
