Microsoft Visualization Language
The Microsoft Visualization Language (or the Vedea project) is a prototype of a new experimental language for creating interactive infographics, data visualizations and computational art. It is designed to be accessible to people who are either new to programming or whose primary domain of expertise is something other than programming.
Vedea is designed to enable scientists and domain experts to create and incrementally refine interactive visualizations suitable for data exploration and publication without having to learn the details of complex rendering and visualization APIs. In Vedea, data can be coupled to visual attributes in a declarative fashion.
Vedea is a project of the Computational Science Laboratory in Microsoft Research, Cambridge UK.
