[Display Elements] [DST->WIRED] [Known bugs] [Acknowledgements]

Using WIRED (ralwired98 version)

The WIRED Event Display allows you to view events at different orientations and magnifications.

To change the magnification, press the Zoom and Zoom buttons. To view the event from different angles, drag the mouse across the screen (within the black viewing area). If you want to keep a certain view, you can hold down a mouse button and move the pointer out of the viewing area. To restore the original view, press the button.

Although it's almost certainly easiest to see the topology of the event by rotating at random, you can think of it as dragging the surface of an (invisible) globe centred at the primary vertex.
