Information visualizations with multiple coordinated views enable users to
rapidly explore complex data and discover relationships. However, it is
usually difficult for users to find or create the coordinated visualizations
they need. Snap-Together Visualization allows users to coordinate visualizations
to create multiple-view interfaces that are customized to their needs. Users query their relational
database and load results into desired visualizations. Then they specify
coordinations between visualizations for selecting, navigating, or re-querying.
Developers can make independent visualization tools 'snap-able' by including
a few simple hooks.
