Projects / Systems

ZEUS
Algorithm animation at Digital Systems Research Centre.

ZStep'94
ZStep 94 is a program debugging environment designed to help the programmer understand the correspondence between static program code and dynamic program execution.

Pavane
A declarative program visualization system developed at the Concurrent Systems Group, Washington University, Department of Computer Science.

AIMS (Automated Instrumentation and Monitoring System)
AIMS is a software toolkit that facilitates performance evaluation of parallel applications on multiprocessors. Developed at the NASA Ames Research Center.

VOGUE
A system developed at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo. VOGUE Integrates a number of 2D software visualisations into one 3D visualisation in an attempt to minimise cognitive load.

Java Algorithm animation
Here are some Java applets which produce simple algorithm animations of various sorting routines.
