Paper Abstract

The available screen space of common mobile hardware is little compared to stationary devices. This leads to significant usability problems if large imagery is to be displayed. This can be overcome by an appropriate user interface in terms of an image browsing technique. Such an interface consists of the two main parts content representation and means for interaction. However, many existing techniques do not consider the limitations of mobile environments. To overcome them, this publication proposes 3 new interactive image browsing techniques based on approaches from general content browsing. To consider remote environments, it is also shown how to combine each technique with a dynamic image streaming strategy significantly decreasing the transmitted data volume. Overall, a significant enhancement regarding representation, interaction and use of bandwidth compared to traditional strategies could be achieved by the introduced image browsing techniques.
