More about this link

People are not frogs, making it difficult to navigate 3D computer spaces.

Stick to 2D for visualizing abstract information spaces and sitemaps. Shun virtual reality gimmicks (e.g., shopping malls) that distract from users' goals. Guidelines are given for when to use 3D (answer: rarely).

November 15, 1998, Alertbox by Jakob Nielsen.
