This paper addresses the Focus+Context issues involved in navigating very large graphs in 3D Euclidean space. The main aim of the approach presented in this material is to preserve and perhaps enhance the user mental map during the transition phase from one focus object to the other. This approach, NavAssist, accomplishes this task by filling the users view port with the maximum amount of information without compromising user orientation. A simplified 3D view point path-generating technique is presented that reveals the largest number of graph components during 3D space navigation.
