Viewing a large graph in limited display space has traditionally been accomplished using either reduced scale rendering of the graph or by attaching scrollbars to a view window which shows only a smal portion of the entire graph. Recent work, however, has concentrated on integrating a locally detailed view with a globally scaled view. We present an algorithm for constructing a view which smoothly integrates local detail and global context in a single view window and describe user interaction with such a display.
