Seenet is a system for network visualization in which statistics that describe the operation of a network can be displayed graphically. In this system, a network is presented on a computer screen along with various user-operated sliders, buttons, and toggles that allow direct manipulation of the display, in order to reveal information about the state of the network. The user interface was designed to promote rapid interaction and ease of use, which are critical to the success of this system. Features of Seenet include: a screen design in which most of the area is utilized for the network display, color usage that is consistent and meaningful, mouse actions on the network display to bring up auxiliary information, a novel 2-sided slider, animation for showing time sequences, and 'brushing' for selecting subsets of the network nodes.
