Abstract

Handhelds have become more popular in recent years, and are increasingly used in different application domains. Because of the limited resources of these devices new paradigms for information presentation and interaction facilities are needed. This paper describes, how innovative methods from the field of information visualization can be used for mobile pocket-sized devices. We focus on special presentation techniques and the visualization of hierarchies for navigation. Moreover, we introduce an effective technique for browsing the World Wide Web via mobile handhelds.
