We explore the adaptation of traditional 2D small-multiples visualisation to 3D immersive spaces. We use a ”shelves” metaphor and consider a design space across several layout and interaction dimensions. We demonstrate a prototype system and perform two user studies comparing the effect of the shelf curvature dimension on users’ ability to perform comparison and trend analysis tasks. Our results suggest that, with fewer multiples, a flat layout is more performant. With an increasing number of multiples, this performance difference is diminished. However, a semi-circular layout is more prefered by users than full-circular and flat layouts.
