Rayon: A Unified Framework for Data Visualization

  • Abstract

    Data visualization summarizes large volumes of data and represents this data pictorially. Data visualization is used in a wide variety of applications, but visualization techniques that are effective in one application can often be used as well or better in another application. When organizations depend on good data visualization, a unified visualization capability will often increase that effectiveness; this is especially important if an organization relies on internal experts to create new visualization techniques appropriate to their environment. The Rayon visualization toolkit was developed to augment large-scale network analytic information, and to improve the visualization capability and productivity of analytic operations by making it possible to share visualization techniques between applications.
