Zooming interfaces for maps

Abstract [en]

These days we are living are the stage of a revolution in technology, where the use of hand-held devices is increasing day by day. Hand-held devices includes different mobile devices, such as cellular phones, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), etc., that offer great advantages and utilities. Many applications assume that these devices are "location aware", displaying the information required through a map. It can be used to search locations of interest such as museums, landmarks, and pubs. The small size of hand-held devices permits essential mobility, but limits the device in other ways, like an extremely small display and limited input capabilities. The necessity of showing large amounts of data requires thinking about different alternatives to mitigate these problems. Zoomable User Interfaces (ZUIs) could be a suitable possibility. The aim of this investigation is the study of Zoomable User Interfaces. In order to reach this objective this project develops an application for the visualization of maps using a Zoomable User Interface. The user is able to view and interact with geographic information through the facilities and advantages this paradigm offers.
