Feature Spotlight: Perspectives

In my first post, I staked ilograph’s claim in the diagramming tool landscape, saying ilographs treat perspectives as first-class citizens. With ilograph, viewing a system from multiple perspectives is a built-in concept. The same resource can appear in two different perspectives, and those perspectives are then linked together visually.

Interactive ilograph demo now live

The first interactive ilograph demo is now live! Check it out here. This ilograph shows a Drupal deployment on AWS from five perspectives (Data Request, Internet Access, SSH, Security Groups and Templates). While there is much to improve on, I’m hoping to get quality feedback from twitter, reddit and hacker news first.

About ilographs

ilographs are interactive, multi-perspective diagrams. From one ilograph, users can view a system from multiple points of view and multiple levels of detail. Whereas existing solutions would require separate, unconnected diagrams to describe a system from different perspectives, ilographs treat perspectives as first-class citizens.
