When you want to preview your data, the GxGeographicView is what you will typically use. It is available through the "Preview" tab within ArcCatalog, and displays the geography of the selected dataset in its window. By default the GxGeographicView object shows up on the Preview Tab page, however, the object implements IGxView like the other GxView objects and could be used as its own tab.
A set of standard manipulation tools is provided for zooming, panning, and performing identifies. The developer can easily add their own views that work with this view in whatever fashion they would like. You accomplish this by accessing the map or map display objects from the IGxGeographicView interface. Internally, the view uses the services of these two objects to display the selected item, and you can manipulate them as well.
