Abstract

In recent years, many systems for visualizing and exploring massive amounts of data have emerged. A topic that has not yet been investigated much, concerns the analysis of constraints that different objects impose on one another, regarding co-existence. We present concepts toward visualizing mutual constraints between objects in a three-dimensional virtual and ARbased setting. We use 3x3 Sudoku games as suitable examples for investigating the underlying, more general concepts of helping users visualize and explore the constraints between different settings in rows, columns and blocks of matrix-like arrangements. Constraints are shown as repulsive and magnetic forces making objects keep their distance or seek proximity.
