Discrete and continuous selection interface

Abstract : In order to browse between a collection of datasets susceptible of graphical representation, these datasets are associated with points on a sliding scale of one, two or three dimensions. When a point corresponding to a particular dataset is selected by a user via a mouse pointer etc. it is rendered as a graphical representation and presented to the user. When an intermediate point is selected, a interpolation of the datasets corresponding to the nearby points is generated and the resulting dataset rendered as a graphical representation and presented to the user. The interaction may be implemented with a slider bar type widget having hybrid behaviour such that clicking on the bar causes the button to jump to the nearest point corresponding to a data, while sliding to a chosen intermediate position activates the interpolation of adjacent datasets.
