Maintenance and evolution of complex software systems (such as mobile telephones) involves activities such as reverse engineering (RE) and software visualization. Although several RE tools exist, we found their architecture hard to adapt to the domain and problem specific requirements posed by our current practice in Nokia. In this paper, we present an open architecture which allows easy prototyping of RE data exploration and visualization scenarios for a large range of domain models. We pay
