When visually exploring a multidimensional dataset with a 2D visualization (e.g. scatterplots), us-ers may switch views with a smooth 3D rotation. We identified three expected benefits of such transitions: tracking graphical marks, understanding their relative arrangements, and perceiving structural elements. We studied existing implementations of progressive 3D rotation and found problems that prevent those benefits when dealing with dense scenes. To address this issue, we propose an improvement by wisely placing the rotation axis. We performed two controlled experi-ments, which confirm the expected benefits and validate our improvements to the technique. Based on these experiment results, we describe a set of interaction techniques to control the rota-tion axis placement and apply them to the exploration of aircraft data.

|Other||The 27th International BCS Human Computer Interaction Conference was organised by the School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics at Brunel University in conjunction with BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. The conference was held on campus at Brunel University from Monday 9 September to Friday 13 September.|
The conference theme was ‘The Internet of Things’ and the challenges it holds for HCI researchers. As you will hopefully agree when you look through these proceedings, this focus provided us with a set of papers that highlighted the diversity and richness of HCI research in the UK and internationally for such a topical area of debate. Papers were presented on topics such as: design methods, sustainability, HCI and education, social media, mobile design, user characteristics, HCI in the work place and innovative interaction styles.
