Title Visually exploring and querying XML with BaseX
Abstract XML documents are widely used as a generic container for textual contents. As they are increasingly growing in size, XML databases are emerging to efficiently store and query their contents. Besides, due to the hierarchic structure of XML documents, hierarchic visualizations are needed to facilitiate cognitive access to query results. BaseX is a simple database prototype, mapping XML documents to a table based tree encoding. An integrated treemap visualization and a query interface allow visual access to the documents and demonstrate the efficiency of the underlying data storage.
