    In this paper we examine the issues involved in
    developing information visualisation systems and
    present a framework for their construction. The
    framework addresses the components which must be
    considered in providing effective visualisations. The
    framework is specified using a declarative object
    oriented language; the resulting object model may be
    mapped to a variety of graphical user interface
    development platforms. This provides general support
    to developers of visualisation systems. A prototype
    system exists which allows the investigation of
    alternative visualisations for a range of data sources.
    The authors conclude with the benefits of this approach and issues requiring further investigation.
