SoftwareWe have developed several software tools. Freely available tools are listed in the follwing.
We have developed an interactive, visual survey of text visualization techniques, called Text Visualization Browser. This web-based system supports, for instance, the identification of related work or open research questions which are uncovered so far. All contained text visualization techniques were manually classified, and the tool provides features for searching and filtering.
A plugin for the VANTED system, called Glyph-based Link Exploration of Pathways (GLIEP). It helps to guide the navigation and exploration process of interconnected pathway visualization as well as insight into the overall interconnectivity. Available on SourceForge.
Ontologies and hierarchical clustering are both important tools in biology and medicine to study highthroughput data such as transcriptomics and metabolomics data. Our tool CluMa-GO visualizes a large data set in the context of the Gene Ontology (GO) under consideration of a clustering of the data. Available on SourceForge.
This D3-based software demo shows a solution of an interactive visualization of multivariate data set. The underlying data was taken from a whiskey database.
T. Haga developed for his bachelor's thesis a visualization tool for the analysis of the public Swedish Research Council's project database. The tool is currently only available via VPN (click here). This web-based application was built by using HTML5 and CSS3. A large part of the application was programmed with the help of the Google Web Toolkit.
We implemented a small Flash-based software demo to show the features of a typical InfoVis tool. The underlying data was taken from a database of mobile phones.
