In this paper, we propose a presentation position determination method to improve the noticeability of information presentation in floor and wall projection public displays. Two types of information presentation methods: fixed position presentation and moving presentation, and four parameters: distance to the person, distance from the gazing point, difference in position, and direction of movement from other moving information, were considered and evaluated in this study. The experimental results showed that the method using the distance to the person was the most effective in both presentation methods.
