We report on a design exploration into how a large multi-touchtabletop display can be used for information visualization. Wedesigned an interface where users explored a tagged photocollection by bi-manual manipulation of the collections’ tagcloud. User feedback showed that despite the availability ofmulti-touch most of the actual interactions were single-touch.However, some particular natural actions, such as grabbing thetag cloud and partitioning it into two parts, were often carriedwith both hands. Thus our user study indicates that multi-touchcan act as a useful complementary interaction method ininformation visualization interfaces.
