Hierarchical Layouts for Photo Libraries
October-December 2006 (vol. 13 no. 4)
pp. 62-72
Jack Kustanowitz, University of Maryland
Ben Shneiderman, University of Maryland
We use an annotated digital photo collection to demonstrate a two-level auto-layout technique consisting of a central primary region with secondary regions surrounding it. Because the object sizes within regions can only be changed in discrete units, we refer to them as quantum content. Our real-time algorithms enable a compelling interactive display as users resize the canvas, or move and resize the primary region.
Index Terms:
photo layouts, photo collections, interactive algorithms, digital libraries, quantum content, bi-level hierarchies, user interfaces, information visualization
