The InfoVis Toolkit is a Interactive Graphics Toolkit written in Java to ease the development of Information Visualization applications and components.
The main characteristics of the InfoVis Toolkit are:
The InfoVis Toolkit, as of version 0.9, implements nine (9) types of visualization: Scatter Plots, Time Series, Parallel Coordinates and Matrices for tables; Node-Link diagrams, Icicle trees and Treemaps for trees; Adjacency Matrices and Node-Link diagrams for graphs. Node-Link visualizations provides several variants (8 for graphs and 4 for trees).
The framework has been designed to support this versatility so, if you see a problem or improvements when trying to implement your own visualizations, let me know so that I can improve the Toolkit.
