The advent of ultra-high resolution wall-size displays and their use for complex tasks require a more systematic analysis and deeper understanding of their advantages and drawbacks compared with desktop monitors. While previous work has mostly addressed search, visualization and sense-making tasks, we have designed an abstract classification task that involves explicit data manipulation. Based on our observations of real uses of a wall display, this task represents a large category of… 
Visual Analytics on Large Displays: Exploring User Spatialization and How Size and Resolution Affect Task Performance
TLDR
Overall, it is found that navigation technique preferences differ significantly among users, that the wide range of observed spatialization types suggest several different analysis techniques are adopted, and that display size affects clustering task performance whereas display resolution does not.
Using Space: Effect of Display Size on Users' Search Performance
TLDR
This work determines participants' performance when searching for titles and images in large text documents using one to six 50" 4K monitors and shows that the users' visual search performance does not linearly increase with an increasing amount of display space.
Understanding pointing for workspace tasks on large high-resolution displays
TLDR
It is determined that MAGIC pointing had a lower throughput, but participants had the perception of higher performance, and the results indicate that the choice of technique is scenario-dependent which contrasts with desktop computers.
Effects of screen-responsive visualization on data comprehension
TLDR
A visual interface with a coordinated multiple view layout for the large display and two alternative designs of the same interface – a space-saving boundary visualization layout and an overview layout – for the mobile condition are developed, providing new guidelines for screen-responsive visualization interfaces.
Effects of Display Size and Resolution on User Behavior and Insight Acquisition in Visual Exploration
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is found that larger displays with more pixels can significantly increase the number of discoveries reported during visual exploration, while yielding broader, more integrative insights.
Is Moving Improving?: Some Effects of Locomotion in Wall-Display Interaction
TLDR
The results suggest that moving may not be improving performance, depending on the use of virtual navigation, and that physical movement does benefit performance.
Image browsing on large high-resolution displays
TLDR
This work presents two full-body, hands-free zooming interaction techniques for image exploration on large high-resolution displays that allow users to freely move in front of the display and compares them with state-of-the-art image browsing.
Scalability limits of large immersive high-resolution displays
TLDR
This work presents the results of a variable information space experiment, targeted at exploring the scalability limits of immersive highresolution, tiled-display walls under physical navigation, and presents a quantitative analysis of per-task user performance across the various display conditions.
Trade-offs Between a Vertical Shared Display and Two Desktops in a Collaborative PathFinding Task
TLDR
While pairs were overall faster with the two desktops, quality was more consistent in the vertical shared display where pairs spent more time communicating, even though there is a-priori more implicit collaboration in this setup.

Physically large displays improve performance on spatial tasks
TLDR
Results suggest that physically large displays, even when viewed at identical visual angles as smaller ones, help users perform better on mental rotation tasks and show that the effects of physical display size are independent of other factors that may induce immersion, such as interactivity and mental aids within the virtual environments.
Mid-air pan-and-zoom on wall-sized displays
TLDR
Significant effects were obtained for all three factors: bimanual interaction, linear gestures and a high level of guidance resulted in significantly improved performance, and the interaction effects among some of the dimensions suggest possible combinations for more complex, real-world tasks.
The effects of peripheral vision and physical navigation on large scale visualization
TLDR
An experiment that separates peripheral vision and physical navigation as independent variables indicates that, for most of the tasks tested, increased physical navigation opportunity is more critical to improving performance than increased field of view.
Sizing up visualizations: effects of display size in focus+context, overview+detail, and zooming interfaces
TLDR
For multi-scale navigation, classic interactive visualization techniques did not benefit from being scaled to a large display, and across display sizes, overview+detail works the best, in particular for comparing items.
Perception of Visual Variables on Tiled Wall-Sized Displays for Information Visualization Applications
TLDR
An understanding of, and indicators predicting how, large variations in viewing distances and viewing angles affect the accurate perception of angles, areas, and lengths is contributing to design considerations on how to create effective visualizations for these spaces.
Comparing usage of a large high-resolution display to single or dual desktop displays for daily work
TLDR
A week-long study that investigates large display use in a personal desktop computing context by comparing it with single and dual desktop monitor use shows users' unanimous preference for using a large display.
High-precision pointing on large wall displays using small handheld devices
TLDR
This work investigates high-precision pointing techniques capable of acquiring targets as small as 4 millimeters on a 5.5 meters wide display while leaving up to 93 % of a typical tablet device's screen space available for task-specific widgets.
Move to improve: promoting physical navigation to increase user performance with large displays
TLDR
Increased physical navigation on larger displays correlates with reduced virtual navigation and improved user performance and design factors that afford and promote the use of physical navigation in the user interface are identified.
Visual encodings that support physical navigation on large displays
TLDR
If and how the choice of visual encodings for large, high-resolution visualizations affects physical navigation, and ultimately task performance for a spatial information visualization task is analyzed.
Navigation patterns and usability of zoomable user interfaces with and without an overview
TLDR
No difference between interfaces in subjects' ability to solve tasks correctly is found, and subjects who switched between the overview and the detail windows used more time, suggesting that integration of overview and detail windows adds complexity and requires additional mental and motor effort.
