Gesture-Based Input for Drawing Schematics on a Mobile Device

Chivers, Daniel, Rodgers, Peter (2011) Gesture-Based Input for Drawing Schematics on a Mobile Device. In: Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Information Visualization (IV11). . pp. 182-196. IEEE ISBN 978-1-4577-0868-8. (doi:10.1109/IV.2011.50) (KAR id:30741)


We present a system for drawing metro map style schematics using a gesture-based interface. This work brings together techniques in gesture recognition on touch-sensitive devices with research in schematic layout of networks. The software allows users to create and edit schematic networks, and provides an automated layout method for improving the appearance of the schematic. A case study using the metro map metaphor to visualize social networks and web site structure is described.
