Multi-touch Graph Interaction Techniques

This is a completed project.


Interactive node-link diagrams are useful to describe and explore data relationships in many domains such as computer and social network analysis, transportation planning, and logistic data. We present a multi-touch interaction technique set (IT set) that focuses on edge interactions for node-link diagrams. This IT set allows multiple people to manipulate graphs cooperatively, and provides each person with the flexibility to combine a range of interaction techniques in either sequential or simultaneous actions in order to address edge congestion and to facilitate collaborative analysis.
