Visualization of XML documents and transformations

leave a comment »

I have finished my master studies.
My Master Thesis in Danish can be read here (abstract in English and link to a pdf file in Danish).

The Thesis is about how you can visualize XML-data.
The Thesis report has lots of figures and even if you can’t read Danish it should be possible to see the idea of how different visualization styles can be applied.

Show World Countries – using SVG, JSONP, JQuery

with one comment

A simple application that displays 213 countries and islands of the world with a search option.
Works with latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer.

With dropdown and search option

The SVG file only

Show World Countries

The app is one HTML and SVG file. The HTML uses JQuery.
The list of countries are extracted to HTML from the SVG file using javascript. The DOM of the SVG is updated from the HTML to the SVG (hope this makes sense). The country information is extracted using Ajax with JSONP format and JQuery.

I got the inspiration when I saw this game made in SVG
Now you have a tool to cheat the game 🙂

Generic visualization of XML documents with SVG

leave a comment »

Visualizing XML
I am working on a visualization project of XML documents using SVG to generate views.
I have implemented a prototype which can be seen here

All kinds of valid XML documents can be visualized. It’s a generic approach where the structure of the XML is examined and visualized.

Following hierarchical visualization types are implemented:
Tree, Rectangle, Chinese Boxes, Mindmap, File System and Sunburst.

Mindmap view example
Mindmap view

The project is available at
