Multi Perspective Research Paper

We define Multiple Perspectives as a broad term to encompass multiple and possibly heterogeneous viewpoints, representations and roles, that can be adopted within both a collaborative and non-collaborative context. The following example will help motivate this concept:

In the context of sceintific visualization we envision a potential application of multiple perspectives in the visualization of multi-dimensional data-sets. Here a large number of dimensions may be partitioned across multiple viewers to assist in reducing the overall complexity of the content being visualized. The challenge is in providing the necessary interface to support this collaboration while minimizing the confusion and additional cognitive load that may result from having to coordinate the activity of multiple viewers all simultaneously viewing disparate parts of the data-set.
