As of July 2012, the development of Choosel has been discontinued
Choosel is an extensible, modular GWT framework for web-based visualizations that are composed of multiple views. It is available under the Apache License 2.0. There are three main use cases for Choosel:
- (Domain-specific) visual data exploration workbenches (example) that empower domain experts to visually explore, analyze and understand data from their domain. For example, Bio-Mixer helps biomedical researchers in exploring bio-medical ontologies and in understanding how concepts from different ontologies are related.
- Interactive infographics and telling stories with data (example) using multiple coordinated views. For example, users can explore earthquakes with more then 1,000 casualties since 1900 in our example visualization.
- (Application-specific) data visualization in GWT applications can leverage Choosel visualization components and view coordination features. Protovis-GWT (examples), a sub-project, can be used to create custom visualizations when more flexibility is required.
