Reaction:A Review of Overview+Detail, Zooming, and Focus+Context Interfaces

    The paper is too lengthy. I was not able to read it through completely.The authors have discussed about  different types of interfaces. The paper reviews each type and the combination of different techniques used for visualization. I found the examples to be interesting and also the fact that discontinuity  should be minimum.The paper talks about challenges in adopting different combo of techniques.I The fish eye effect in Mac OS  proves that a technique should be used only when it improves cognition.
