Texto completo:



Information Visualization is a field of computer graphics which aims to present information graphically, allowing users to better understand a great amount of information. It also allows identifying standards, or even detecting new information which, at first, was not possible to be perceived due to its complex representation. This study briefly describes this field and presents a tool for visual data mining executed on the web, through of the Parallel Coordinates technique, that allow users to analyze information structured in a master/detail format. Other advantage of the tool is its capacity of accepting data from several systems exported by the user in the XML format. A case study is demonstrated in order to exemplify the resources of the tool.
