Description: Database visualization is an area of growing importance as database systems become larger and more accessible. DataSplash is an easyto -use, integrated environment for navigating, creating, and querying visual representations of data. We will demonstrate the three main components which make up the DataSplash environment: a navigation system, a directmanipulation interface for creating and modifying visualizations, and a directmanipulation visual query system. 2. OVERVIEW Database system performance -- as measured by either processing speed or the quantity of data that can be managed -- has grown by an order of magnitude in recent years, making increasingly sophisticated applications feasible on ever-larger datasets. However, database query languages have changed relatively little and are difficult for non-experts to use. The vast majority of database users are unable to customize applications to their own needs, let alone develop their own custom applications. Thus, at present the exp...
