Visualizing Traceability Links between Source Code and Documentation

Chen, Xiaofan; Hosking, John; Grundy, John


It is well recognized that visualizing traceability links between software artifacts helps developers to recover, browse, and maintain these inter-relationships effectively and efficiently. However, it is a major challenge for researchers to efficiently visualize traceability links for big software systems because of scalability and visual clutter issues. In this paper we present a new approach that combines treemap and hierarchical tree visualization techniques to provide a global structure of...[Show more]
