Abstract

COMAIDE is a toolkit for user-system cooperation through joint multi-focal graph browsing. It supports cooperative force-directed layout management, concurrent with dialogue handling, for heterogeneous multi-layered 3D interactive diagrams. The layout manager's intuitively 'natural' animations of multi-layered 3D graph drawings support: 1. Cooperative tidying of user-manipulable 3D layout; 2. Optional 'lucid' 3D layout optimized for a favoured viewpoint; 3. Layout annealing for good initial 3D diagram topologies;
