Software World

The Software World visualisation is a virtual environment based visualisation that represents a static analysis of Java source code. These data items are then visualised for the user to explore and query as necessary to be able to better comprehend the code and then perform some comprehension or maintenance task. Since Software World is targeted at the visualisation of Java code, the levels of metaphor mapping are tailored to suit the language. The language definition of Java allows certain assumptions to be made and these have influenced the decisions made.
