Multimedia Environments and Interactive Scientific Presentation of Industrially-Based Data Sets
A multimedia framework and model are employed, to embrace the interactive and visual presentation of a series of case-studies with large conventional (static), and multi-mode (dynamic) data sets. This identifies multifaceted presentation requirements. Graphs are utilised to enable rigorous multimedia system (MMS) design, effortless updates and unproblematic future expansion. Multimedia environments (MME) facilitate rapid prototyping and a data-oriented approach is advocated. As a result, the customised presentation attributes vary widely from case-study to case-study, touching upon aspects such as interfaces, interaction, data-content organisation and presentation styles. At the user-level, a number of novel features are introduced, beyond those frequently observed in proprietory software. Interaction through multi-menus engenders direct interfacing with the underlying graph, enabling effortless transition, and direct data-access, notwithstanding remote data-content. Combinations of novel interaction techniques are realised, being combined under a single interface. The data-content, originates from simulation and experimental scientific fields of study. The MMSs advanced have been actively used to cover presentation requirements, in addressing both industrial and academic audiences.
