• Browsing the WWW by Interacting with a Textual Virtual Environment -- A Framework for Experimenting with Navigational Metaphors 

      Dieberger, Andreas (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      This paper describes a system that combines a textual virtual environment (MOO -- MUD Object Oriented) and a WWW browser. The MOO provides a text-only but information-rich spatial user interface in which objects and locations ...
    • EasySLAM 

      Fathi, Alireza; Cunningham, Alex; Paluri, Balmanohar; Ni, Kai; Dellaert, Frank (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010)
      EasySLAM is a robust, accurate, efficient and easy-to-use visual SLAM framework which uses the unique properties of planar landmarks to navigate robots in societal settings. Due to the use of landmarks which can be ...
    • Evaluation of a Multimodal Interface for 3D Terrain Visualization 

      Krum, David Michael; Omoteso, Olugbenga; Ribarsky, William; Starner, Thad; Hodges, Larry F. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2002)
      This paper describes an evaluation of various interfaces for visual navigation of a whole Earth 3D terrain model. A mouse driven interface, a speech interface, a gesture interface, and a multimodal speech and gesture ...
    • Evaluation of Movement Control Techniques for Immersive Virtual Environments 

      Bowman, Douglas A.; Koller, David; Hodges, Larry F. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996)
      We present a categorization of techniques for first-person movement or travel through immersive virtual environments, as well as a framework for evaluating the quality of different techniques for specific virtual environment ...
    • The Information Mural: A Technique for Displaying and Navigating Large Information Spaces 

      Jerding, Dean Frederick; Stasko, John T. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      Information visualizations must allow users to browse information spaces and focus quickly on items of interest. Being able to see some representation of the entire information space provides an initial gestalt overview ...
    • Speech and Gesture Multimodal Control of a Whole Earth 3D Visualization Environment 

      Krum, David Michael; Omoteso, Olugbenga; Ribarsky, William; Starner, Thad; Hodges, Larry F. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2002)
      A growing body of research shows several advantages to multimodal interfaces including increased expressiveness, exibility, and user freedom. This paper investigates the design of such an interface that integrates speech ...
    • Third-Person Navigation of Whole-Planet Terrain in a Head-tracked Stereoscopic Environment 

      Wartell, Zachary Justin; Ribarsky, William; Hodges, Larry F. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1998)
      Navigation and interaction in stereoscopic virtual environments with head-tracking for very large data sets present several challenges beyond those encountered with smaller or monoscopic data sets. First, zooming by ...
    • Using Graphic History in Browsing the World Wide Web 

      Ayers, Eric Z.; Stasko, John T. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995)
      Users of hypertext systems often find themselves eagerly following hypertext links deeper and deeper into a hypertext web, only to find themselves "lost" and unable find their way back to previously visited pages. As ...
