Gesture System for a Graph Editor

Burak Muammer Taysi, Washington University in St Louis


This thesis investigates a process of designing a gesture system for a simple graphical editor on a pen-based computer. The graphical editor, named Box and Arrow Editor, was developed to test the designed gestures. The results of the testing and the evaluation of the principles used to formulate the gestures are presented. The design process covers issues of application of principles to gesture design, elimination of all menus, user evaluations and recognition problems.
