[sample image] Information Highlighting by Color Dependent Depth Perception with Chromo-Stereoscopy (2002)
Due to characteristics of the human visual system different colors induce different depth perception. This chromo-stereoscopy has been already used for 3D data to enhance a third spatial dimension. We propose to use chromo-stereoscopy for 2D abstract data. Color coding introduces a depth cue which encodes relevance with chromo-stereoscopy. The focus information literally "stands out" as compared to the context information. We applied this technique on two-dimensional graphs and multi-layer representations. Our approach can also be easily combined with other focus+context methods
