Orientation is a complement to Focus + Context: it allows users to orient a domain from their knowledge of that space, and thereby to re-contextualize a new or current focus from the perspective of that knowledge. The Problem: Predetermined hierarchical organization of a domain forces a user to access that domain through one path only. That path itself may exclude the user from meaningful domain access. A Solution: In [2] schraefel proposed orientation as way to let users reorganize the dimensions of an information space dynamically to support access to a space from multiple perspectives in order to privilege what a user may already know about a domain. An Implementation: In [1] Pacheco designed the Phaser Tool as a method to support orientation.
