The recent popularity of small mobile devices such as cellular phones, digital cameras, and game device has made it increasingly convenient to carry them with us as we go about our daily lives. However, the increased miniaturization and functionality range of these devices can make it hard to access and utilize their contents. For instance, when using a device with a small display screen, it is often impossible to display an entire area of interest in a single view and the existence of numerous buttons can make it difficult to manipulate the device. In this study, we propose a novel interface that allows intuitive browsing of the content of mobile devices using an actual map.
