Abstract
Many potential users of program visualization have a strong intuitive belief that visualization is a valuable tool for communicating information about the state and behavior of programs. Yet, in practice, the use of visualization is less pervasive than the notion that it is useful. Several reasons may exist for this discrepancy, among them the effort required to create and refine visualizations, difficulty in collecting information from running programs, difficulty of the viewers in navigating and refining the views they are presented with, as well as questions about the true benefits to the user. Our position is that interactivity is key to addressing many, though not all, of these concerns. In particular, we focus on supporting environments in which creators and users interact to create and renew visualizations in the same domain in which visualization occurs. In this paper we present three projects that take this approach and describe the planned empirical studies for evaluation of this work.....
