Today, with the availability of new interactive walls and tabletop technologies, the number of multi-display interactive visualization rooms of all sizes and of many usages is on the rise. The application scenarios are expanding well beyond the personal or ad hoc group settings. In this position paper, we examine these environments according to how they share content, visualize data, and allow for manipultaion of the UI between and among multiple interactive surfaces including tables and walls. We term this partitioning Modes of Multi-surface Visualization and Interaction, or MVI. Three modes of MVI are briefly analysed and illustrated that will form the basis for our future research at large.
