The Infoviz research community has produced expressive visualizations to analyze complex and sophisticated data. In this talk, we will review two visualization techniques, Cubix and VisualID glyphs, in the context of software engineering.

We have revisited these two techniques and characterized the divergences on usability in a software engineering context.

The talk will demonstrate these two visualization techniques and conclude with some open challenges in the field of software visualizations.
