General software information
The Visualization and Usability Group of NIST.
VISVIP is part of the WebMetrics tool set: software designed to assist usability engineers (UE) evaluate web-based applications.
Specific software information
2D or 3D
Less than 10 000 nodes
Field of uses
The purpose of VISVIP is to visualize data generated by the WebVIP tool. WebVIP allows the UE to instrument a website so as to produce a log of activity when an experimental subject uses the site to accomplish some task. The log is essentially sequence of time-stamped URLs, indicating the user's path through the website.
- Help usability engineers cope with logging data from WebVIP - Apply 3D visualization to problem of understanding patterns of website usage.
If a graph is highly interconnected, the UE can specify that the site be pictured as a tree emanating from a selected root node. VISVIP can also arrange the graph by treating pages as adjacent if they are connected by a userpath, rather than by the existence of a static link. The resulting display usually makes the structure of the path much simpler, albeit at the cost of complicating the display of the underlying website.
Interactivity with the graph
C, Tcl/Tk, Perl
Windows, IRIX, Unix-like
