Abstract : Defence systems have become increasingly reliant on software. The intangible and complex nature of software makes it difficult to manage and understand. Computer based visualisations of software have shown promise for providing the necessary visibility to acquire, develop, and maintain software systems. In this report we investigate a generic visualisation tool, Netmap, as a means of addressing these visualisation problems. Issues of using generic visualisation tools to support software tasks are discussed.
