Single View

We characterize a view as a set of one or multiple aligned tracks, with at most one two-axis track. In a single view, we cannot visualize multiple scales and foci.

Multiple Views

Multiple views allow for visualizations with multiple scales and foci. Multiple views can be (i) independent, (ii) weakly linked, (iii) medium linked or (iv) strongly linked. While independent views are not connected in any way, weakly linked views are linked by brushing and linking. Medium linked views share navigation, for example two views are at different scales, but zooming always affects both. Strongly linked views share genomic coordinates at one axis and can also share tracks that are aligned to the axis.
