The visualisation of large information collections is a common problem which has been extensively researched in many domains. Several application domains still exist, however, where visualisation techniques have not been adequately researched or applied. The aim of this paper is to discuss research into visualisation tools for two such areas, namely genealogical information systems and network application management. Genealogical information systems are concerned with providing facilities for storing and browsing family information. Network application management is concerned with providing facilities to manage the performance of network application services. Whilst these two domains are vastly different, the visualisation requirements are very similar. This paper shows how the interactive visualisation tools developed can be used to facilitate effective exploration and browsing of this information.
