reporting tool, like Business Objects, even if it
seems to be easier for the final user (maybe not for
the person handling with the parameters ?)
I was thinking of real 3d-visualization. In fact,
there is something approaching it a little bit in
Excel (3d-histograms and so on), but it's still rather
primitive - and flat.
Imagine your screen would be a transparent cube, or
sphere, and you could wander around, or make it rotate
(well, rotating it would be more practical than
wandering around, I guess), and really see things in
Imagine you could visualize the structure of a
semantic sentence, in 3d and colour...
