Abstract/Description

An experimental 3D interface to an object oriented database is described. It is hoped that using such techniques will help make complex data structures more comprehensible and easier to navigate. A number of 3D visualisation techniques are used to encourage exploration of the data space. The visualisations inform users about the structure and contents of the database by showing classes, objects, and relationships between objects. A discussion of related work is presented followed by a description and initial evaluation of WINONA a prototype 3D interface to an OODB.
