Real-time Collaboration on a Shared Map with Multiple Displays
With the use of several tablet devices and a shared large display, CozyMaps is a multi-display system that supports real-time collocated collaboration on a shared map. Built on existing works, CozyMaps introduces rich user interactions by proposing awareness, notification, and view sharing techniques, to enable seamless information sharing and integration in map-based applications. Based on the results of exploratory study, CozyMaps provides implications for the design of interactive techniques in collaborative multi-display map systems. We conducted an exploratory study to gauge users’ initial reaction from using CozyMaps. Results demonstrated that participants were satisfied with using the system for a collaborative task.
