Abstrakt

Since 6000 years humans have used maps to navigate through space and solve other spatial tasks. Nearly all of time maps were drawn or printed on a piece of paper (or on material like stone or papyrus) of a certain size. Thus the two most common interaction methods were: (i) Holding the map in both hands (ii) or putting the map on a tabletop and perform specific tasks. Nowadays maps can be displayed on a wide range of electronic devices, starting from small screen mobile devices or highly interactive large multi-touch screen and of course the 'old interaction schemas' cannot be applied anymore. In my PhD thesis I investigate new natural and tangible interfaces that allow intuitive interaction with digital spatial information transferring and/or preserving the 'old interaction schemas'. All different sizes of devices are considered, starting from mobile augmented reality interfaces, mobile projection interfaces, or even large scale interactive multi-touch surfaces.
