Abstract

The introduction and the integration of Zoomable User Interfaces (ZUI) into Pounamu, a visual language meta-tool, that provides enhanced view navigation and management features was discussed. Pounamu is a meta-CASE tool that is used to specify and realize a wide range of domain-oriented, visual language environments. The tools enables user to to specify a meta-model that defines the constructs of a visual programming language. The Zoomable User Interfaces provide the user with support for flexible and dynamic design overviews and view element focus and helps address problems of lack of screen space and display capability in complex views.
