Multi-View Framework

The Multi-View Framework is a software component, which offers functionality to combine various visual representations of one or more data sets in a coordinated fashion.  Software components offering visualization capabilities can be included in such a network, as well as software components offering other functionality, such as statistical analysis. Multi-display scenarios can be addressed by the framework as coordination information can be distributed over network between view instances running on distributed machines.

The framework is composed of three libraries: nett, nett-python and nett-connect. nett implements a light-weight underlying messaging layer enabling the communication between views, whereas nett-python implements a python binding for nett, which enables the integration of python-based software components into a multi-view setup. nett-connect adds additional functionality to this basic communication layer, which enables non-experts to create multi-view setups according to their specific needs and workflows.

The development of InDiProv was co-funded by the HBP during the Ramp-up Phase. This page is kept for reference but will no longer be updated.

This server-side tool is meant to be used for the creation of provenance tracks in context of interactive analysis tools and visualization applications. It is capable of tracking multi-view and multiple applications for one user using this ensemble. It further is able to extract these tracks from the internal data base into a XML-based standard format, such as the W3C Prov-Model or the OPM format. This enables the integration to other tools used for provenance tracking and will finally end up in the UP.
