VIsualization environment for coastal analysis (VINCA)


VINCA (VIsualization environment for coastal analysis) is a multiple coordinated-view system, developed using Java and the libraries and designed for the exploration of unstructured oceanographic datasets. The main activity for this project was the design, administration and analysis of a questionnaire-based evaluation study for the usability assessment of VINCA.
