VUE (Visual Understanding Environment) is a free and open source project based at Tufts University. It is focused on creating flexible tools for managing and integrating digital resources in support of teaching, learning and research.
VUE provides a flexible visual environment for structuring, presenting, and sharing digital information. It supports the construction of interactive presentations, allowing a presenter and audience to focus in on specific content while at the same time maintaining a sense of its overall context within a map. VUE authors may also navigate their pathways in a linear or non-linear fashion, allowing for “just-in-time teaching” and more in-depth exploration of a topic.
Datasets (CSV) and XML feeds (RSS) can be imported into VUE. VUE can help analyze and visualize the data. It is possible to join multiple XML or CSV datasets in VUE to perform additional semi-automatic linking and clustering of data.
