Abstract

A large body of research is available on software clustering, code navigation, and many tools have been developed to comprehend large software systems. However, little attention has been paid to the area of visual clustering. In this paper, we leverage static dependencies and visual clustering to identify landmarks which are important legibility features that developers use as reference points during code navigation. This paper describes VisLan, a tool for visualizing landmark files in source code. We discuss the key features of VisLan and improvements for future work.
