Section: Overall Objectives
- Visualization and Interaction on Wall-Size Displays
AVIZ has worked on new visualization and interaction methods for Wall-Size display such as the new WILD platform recently installed at INRIA/LRI.
We have investigated important issues to transform a visualization system designed for one user on a personal machine to explore a large social network into a collaborative colocated visualization for several users using several input devices on a wall-size display  .
We designed a novel interaction technique called “Motion Pointing” to select targets hard or impossible to reach using motion instead of position  .
- Navigation in large node-link networks
Exploring very large networks involves navigating in very large information spaces. We designed two navigation techniques to improve that navigation using a standard mouse  .
- Strong collaboration on Database/Workflow/Visualization
AVIZ has continued its strong collaboration with the GEMO INRIA project-team and the BD LRI group to tackle the problem of “Interactive data-intensive workflows for scientific applications”.
We have designed an initial workflow model for managing scientific data and started to present it to workshops  .
