Current object group selection techniques such as lasso or rectangle selection can be time consuming and error prone. This is apparent when selecting distant objects on a large display or objects arranged along curvilinear paths in a dense area. We present a novel group selection technique based on the Gestalt principles of proximity and good continuity. The results of a user study show that our new technique outperforms lasso and rectangle selection for object groups in(curvi)linear arrangements or clusters, i.e. groups with an implicit structure.
