Abstract: Depicting massive software system data using treemaps can result in visual clutter and increased cognitive load. This paper introduces an adaptive level-of-detail (LoD) technique that uses scoring for interactive aggregation on a per-node basis. The scoring approximates importance by degree-of-interest measures as well as screen and user-interaction scores. The technique adheres to established aggregation guidelines and was evaluated by means of two user studies. The first investigates task completion time in visual search. The second evaluates the readability of the presented nesting level contouring for aggregates. With the adaptive LoD technique software maps allow for multi-resolution depictions of software system information while facilitating annotation and efficient identification of important nodes.
