The goal of this thesis is to develop a dataflow visual programming language (DFVPL)and a visual editor for the rapid development of visualizations. With this programming language, called OpenInsightExplorer, users can develop visualizations by connecting graphical representations of modules rather than writing source code.<br />Each module represents a part of a visualization program. Modules are designed to function as an independent black box and they start to operate as soon as data is sent to them. This black box design and execution model allows to reuse modules more frequently and simplifies their development.
