This paper introduces a novel technique for smooth and efficient zooming and panning based on dynamical systems in hyperbolic space. Unlike the technique of van Wijk and Nuij, the animations produced by our technique are smooth at the endpoints and when interrupted by a change of target. To analyze the results of our technique, we introduce world/screen diagrams, a novel technique for visualizing zooming and panning animations.
