HiViSer

The Hierarchical Visualization Service HiViSer is a Web API specification for the management and provisioning of tree-structured data and their visualization using information visualization techniques. This website provides a technical prototype for the use of this Web API. It provides (1) a client for configuration and management of tree-structured data and the display of depictions of the data, and (2) a server that provides hierarchy visualization as a service through use of the proposed HiViSer API.

In order to cite the HiViSer API or the prototypical service, use the initial publication on the 10th International Conference on Information Visualisation Theory and Applications (IVAPP 2019, part of VISIGRAPP).
