Using the panorama in this way frees the user from the traditional linear modes of interacting with virtual real-word scenes. In addition, interacting with the detailed view highlights the corresponding region in the panoramic overview and leaves a "trail" of the user's path through the space. These methods of visualizing and interacting with digital video described in this paper can also be appli...
