Navigation as Multiscale Pointing: Extending Fitts' Model to Very High Precision Tasks

Abstract

Fitts pointing model has proven extremely useful forunderstanding basic selection in WIMP user interfaces. Yet todaysinterfaces involve more complex navigation within electronicenvironments. As navigation amounts to a form of multi-scalepointing, Fitts model can be applied to these more complex tasks.We report the results of a preliminary pointing… (More)
