About my project

The objective of this project will be to apply program visualisation techniques to a corpus of spreadsheets to analyse the dependency structures and layout patterns/organisation.

More specifically (based on my current understanding of corpus analysis), to investigate styles and approaches of how people program visual spreadsheets, such as Microsoft Excel, to help improve understanding of what makes a high-quality layout. This reason as to why the corpus analysis is carried out will be reviewed as the project is undertaken. For more see the project proposal.
