Mix & Match:
A Construction Kit for Visualization
We present an environment in which users can interactively
create different visualization methods.
This modular and extensible environment encapsulates most of the
existing visualization algorithms.
Users can easily construct new visualization methods by combining simple,
fine grain building blocks.
These components operate on a local subset of the data
and generally either look for target features or produce visual objects.
Intermediate compositions may also be used to build
more complex visualizations.
This environment provides a foundation for
building and exploring novel visualization methods.
