Project Description:
The Natto View proposes an effective use of the third dimension, taking full advantage of the Z axis: drawing diagrams in two dimensions and reminding the third dimension for interactive manipulation.

The project is a set of 3D interactive visualizing techniques and provides dynamic focus+context operation for graph structure such as the World Wide Web. Information nodes, or HTML documents, are placed on the fundamental floor-plane in 3D space, and users can select and move arbitrary node with direct manipulation. As the user lifts a focused node up, the nodes to which it links are lifted up together, and thus complicated networks are disentangled dynamically. By three dimensional perspective technique, the user can view both details of information connections near the selected node and global context of the large information space like fisheye lens model. The differences of the Natto View from most of other graphical visualization are: It supports not only visualization but also interactive and dynamic manipulation on users' demand. It is a layout-independent method and thus suitable for dynamic enlargement of diagram such as incremental access to huge distributed information networks.
