Abstract
Producing large software systems is an extremely challenging engineering task. The main reason is the difficulty of managing the enormous amounts of code and the great numbers of people involved in the effort. We have developed three novel interactive glyphs specifically tuned for visualizing software data. Our glyphs enable users to track software errors, isolate problems and monitor development progress. To demonstrate our glyphs' functionality, we apply them to visualizing statistics from a multi-million line software project.
