Modeling Spreadsheet Audit: A Rigorous Approach to Automatic Visualization

JORMA SAJANIEMI
2000 Journal of Visual Languages and Computing  
As a result, auditing and visualization tools are required to make spreadsheets easier to comprehend and errors easier to be detected.  ...  Theoretically, it is impossible to check the correctness of a spreadsheet without a formal definition of its computations, but our hope is to find visualizations that point out parts of spreadsheets that  ...  CogMap is implemented in the scripting language of the Claris Resolve spreadsheet system. Discussion. CogMap annotations are attached to areas identified by users.  ...

Manhattan: End-User Programming For Music

Chris Nash
2014 Zenodo  
This paper explores the concept of end-user programming languages in music composition, and introduces the Manhattan system, which integrates formulas with a grid-based style of music sequencer.  ...  , iteration (for loops), branching (goto), and conditional statements (if-then-else).  ...  Spreadsheets offer a declarative, constraint-based model of programming that avoids control flow (loops, branching), in favour of data flow -similar to visual programming languages, a popular approach  ...

The Role of Visualization Tools in Spreadsheet Error Correction from a Cognitive Fit Perspective

Suparna Goswami, Hock Chan, Hee Kim
2008 Journal of the AIS  
For this purpose, this study proposes a framework for classifying activities associated with spreadsheet error correction.  ...  Visualization tools are often advertised as means for improving spreadsheet error correction performance. This study investigates the role of visualization tools in spreadsheet error correction.  ...  The CogMap tool by Hendry and Green (1993; 1994) helps in visually describing or expressing the overall structure of a spreadsheet using different tags, links, and colors.  ...

Learning by Building: A Visual Modelling Language for Psychology Students

P MULHOLLAND
2000 Journal of Visual Languages and Computing  
Our solution was to design and build a programming language for the intended population. The result is Hank, a visual cognitive modelling language for the psychologist.  ...  This is followed by a description of the language itself, evaluation findings and plans for future work. The conclusions draw together the lessons we have learned from the design and use of Hank.  ...  This is followed by a description of the storyboards which are used to visualize the execution of Hank programs.  ...
