The Sentient Map and Its Application to the Macro University E-Learning Environment
The sentient map is a new paradigm for visual information retrieval. It enables the user to view data as maps, so that gestures, more specifically c-gestures, can be used for the interaction between the user and the multimedia information system. Different c-gestures are then dynamically transformed into spatial/temporal queries, or σ-queries, for multimedia information sources and databases. An e-learning environment called the Macro University serves as a test bed to evaluate this approach.
