Views in Squey

Squey is a graphically oriented investigation software on multi-dimensional large sets of data. That’s why it uses different graphical representations.

By extension, all widgets that present any kind of data is called a View. This applies to the following forms of data representations:

  • in raw format (as given by the original strings in the text files, for example)

  • in a graphical representation

  • as the result of computations done on the raw data.


In the Squey terminology, these graphical and non-graphical representations are called Views.
