Abstract

Flat panel displays made movable on a large image surface can act as panning display window to provide improved spatial/visual coordination. A large drawing board is used to represent the actual size of the image were it to be displayed all at once;and one or more flat panel display(s) can be manually positioned over the expanse of said drawing board. The position (and perhaps orientation) of the display(s) on the board are sensed by digitizing devices,and this information is used to formulate what image information is shown on the display(s).
