I have a very visual, map-like interface where most of the interaction takes place in navigation cards as opposite to direct manipulation.
I need to add a "dimension selector" to each node that will change the organisation of the data. I want to put emphasis on the fact that there are other dimension to switch between in the first place (there will be between 1 and 5 dimensions). What are my options?
Up until now all nodes in the graph had the same functionality so it was not a problem to put it into the navigation tabs that open when you select any of the nodes but this one can be different for each node and that is why I would like to put visual clue directly into the graph.
What options do I have with multi-position switchers with limited number of options? Radio buttons? Or this?
PS: I would like to avoid skeuomorphism.
PPS: you can see the tool I am building here.
