A new suite of tools to represent complex data sets

VisTrail

VisTrails is a product of a National Science Foundation (NSF) supported project that takes on the challenge of organizing complex data sets into accurate and cohesive pictures. Vistrails was developed by University of Utah’s Julianna Freire and Claudio Silva, both computer science associate. It is a program that has a suite of tools for data visualizations making it much easier for scientists to create complex visualizations that help viewers gain a better perspective on the research represented.
