Abstract

The power of large and interactive surface of Multi-touch Table lies not in the technology as an end but more the means of enable multiple users to efficiently process visually oriented data. This technology offers different orientations for multiple users which also give advantage such as more than one user to input commands directly to the display surface, either via a pen-based device or directly with their fingers. The aptitude to interact directly with one's manipulation of data provides opportunities for developing richer, more natural of hands-on and further the neutrality of human-computer interaction metaphors. Touch-enabled surfaces are becoming used in various setting such as in education, military and business. It is situated in a variety of work and public places to accommodate sharing information and enriching the interaction on the interface. Adding to this point is that the technology offers a large interactional surface and makes it simpler to support collaborative work. This paper reports on preliminary results from this ongoing research on military decision making, including the significance of multi-touch table application in diversity of domains, namely military and education and last but not least is the fundamental characteristics of Multi-touch Table user-interface functionalities that needed in the development of Multi-touch Table content.
