Story board

Here is a very preliminary view of our visualization tool. The user basically traverses through his storage medium. We then decided to adopt animation features exhibited in another application. This gives a very natural feel of traversing through your storage medium as well as only focusing on certain areas of your disk space as you traverse (see bottom image). We also make use of colors to differentiate files from each other as well to highlight when they have been last modified. This could then offer computer forensics a view of all the files and folders and highlight those that my contain malicious content. We would also try and visualize slack space on the hard drive. When a user hovers over a folder/file relevant information is displayed which can be adjusted according to user preferences. We also want the dimensions to reflect the size of each folder and file.
