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.
