The interface showcased in this video makes use of Macroscope, a physics system based visualisation tool that employs tf*idf analysis to ascertain semantic connections between research papers. The video develops a narrative describing a users interaction with our novel system based on five interaction techniques which enable an intuitive exploration of physical and digital information spaces simultaneously.
