Abstract

In this thesis I present an interaction technique that augments existing mouse-based visualization applications by enabling touch interaction. Previously, this transition to a multi-touch environment was difficult because the existing mouse emulation for touch surfaces was often insufficient to provide full functionality. My solution to this problem uses on-screen virtual mice, designed not only to provide mouse capabilities but also to act as toolglasses, taking advantage of their presence on the display itself. Developed together with a touch-enabled 3D window management system, my approach permits touch interaction with both the 3D windowing environment as well as with the contents of the individual windows contained therein. I describe the implementation of my technique that augments the VisLink 3D visualization environment to demonstrate how to enable multi-touch capabilities on all visualizations written with the popular prefuse visualization toolkit.
