Interactive Annotations on Large, High-Resolution Information Displays
We provide the capabilities to interactively create annotations for high-resolution information displays using low-resolution input. These types of annotations are important during collaborative information exploration to externalize parts of the exploration process for the collaborators. We provide the possibility of using direct touch-input with pen or finger at a low resolution to write or draw annotations. These are made available as Sticky Notes that can then be used without major costs in rendering time and screen-real-estate on a high-resolution display.
