We present ClothLens, a prototype that allows simultaneous interaction of multiple users with a digital map shown on a tabletop display. With our prototype interaction with the content by panning or zooming reduces the conflicts due to interferences. ClothLens utilizes the Focus+Context pattern enabling users to create personal lenses on top of the map. The actual content is organized as a physical cloth object that is bend or stretched according to the interactions.
