Abstract:In this paper, we present MoStarD, a mobile application that couples starfield displays with dynamic queries to support user exploration of large datasets. A novel space compression technique enables users to compress areas of the starfield display to optimize screen space usage and easily focus on specific subsets of a dataset.
