This study concerns the development of 3D interfaces that aid the navigation of large data structures through the usage of the HSV color space, and the ensuing "spatial frames". While data objects that have been colorized in various hues that carry equal saturation and brightness/transparency value seem to be equally fore grounded; varying saturation, brightness and transparency values add depth and hierarchy. During our experiments we noticed that, when thus colorized, the edges connecting the nodes form visual spatial frames, which can result in the meaningful partitioning of 3D space. This property can be exploited to facilitate the display of overall trends within data sets, as well as to ease navigation.
