MedioVis is a visual information seeking system that aims to support users' natural seeking behavior, particularly in complex information spaces. To achieve this goal we introduce multiple complementary visualization techniques together with an easy-touse and consistent interaction concept. Over the last four years, MedioVis was developed in the context of digital libraries following a user-centered design process. The focus of this paper is the presentation of our interaction model and further to give an overview of the applied visualization techniques.
