Glossary » lens


a movable region on the screen (such as a large magnifying glass) that transforms information below it. Typical transformations might include magnification, fisheye views, information filters (by showing street names on a map, for instance), and graphics filters (blurring, tinting, etc). Multiple lenses may be combined to quickly display the results of complex information queries.
