Zoomable user interface for in-depth reading


The Instant Bookplex (IB) system includes a zoomable user interface (ZUI) for navigating through a spatial representation of a document collection. This ZUI supports extended reading in the collection using semantic zooming, graphical presentation of metadata, animated transitions, and an integrated reading user interface. IB helps users find and re-find documents, choose good documents to read next, and navigate between documents.
