Sketch Top: Design Collaboration on a Multi-touch Tabletop

Computer mediated group collaboration, particularly in the
design and engineering disciplines, is in need of better
applications that suit the needs of effective exchange of
information. Multi-touch surfaces offer the capabilities to
augment and better enable face-to-face interaction with
digital content and applications. This paper presents the
design, development and testing of SketchTop, a multitouch
sketching application for collocated design
