New Methods of Visual Browsing

keyboard navigation

**Whoah!**

**Seriously cool dude!**

**It's FUN!!!**

Shneiderman's Info Viz Mantra:

Overview first,

Zoom and filter,

details on demand

How to apply this to DLMF surfaces and info in a VR environment?

- Math Contributions

Coloring complex surfaces

Surface Intersections

Interactive variable manipulation

- Web Baby
- Still the best for distribution
- Native understanding of hardware
- no special software
- it's all in the browser

These are WEB Accessable

Aframe for the Win

- UI and AR work with the DLMF book
- Integration with real time math processing
- shape search / clipping
- 3D printing
- https://math.nist.gov/~SRessler/projects.html
- DLMF in VR or smaller DLMF in VR links
