Icon abacus: positional display of document attributes
This paper presents icon abacus, a space-efficient technique for displaying document attributes by automatic positioning of document icons. It displays the value of an attribute by using displacements along a single axis so that other metadata can be displayed simultaneously on another axis. The layout is stable enough to support navigation using spatial memory.
