Information Visualization, Java, Toolkit

The InfoVis Toolkit [5] is an Interactive Graphics Toolkit written in Java to facilitate the development of Information Visualization applications and components.

The InfoVis Toolkit implements several visualization techniques, as well as interaction techniques related. It has been used for teaching the Information Visualization course (Masters level, Univ.  of Paris-Sud) and is the basis for all AVIZ contracts. It is our main development platform for information visualization; most of our Information Visualization prototypes rely on it. It is available at http://ivtk.sourceforge.net .

In the forthcoming years, it will be superseded by extensions of the Obvious Toolkit (see section  5.4 ).
