    Intuitive Multiple Viewpoints Control using Interlocked Motion of Coordinate Pairs

Session/Category Title:   Interaction Mechanisms



    Adequate presentation of multiple views from different positions and directions, as well as in different scales, enables a user to acquire much information about an environment and recognize the environment in detail. In considering effective use of multiple views, the control method for multiple viewpoints (specifically, a primary viewpoint and additional viewpoints) must be clear to the user. A lot of existing viewpoint manipulation methods originally deal with a single viewpoint;1 however, a method for effectively controlling multiple viewpoints has not yet been discussed. In this sketch, we propose the “interlocked motion of coordinate pairs” as a manipulation technique for intuitively controlling additional viewpoints and the primary viewpoint.
