Abstract [en]

This thesis presents and discusses the implementation of a web application developed as a Master’s degree project at Linköping University. The application is a tool offering a multiperspective visualization of genealogy data, that can be used by genealogists in order to analyze his or her collected family tree data, but also to find what data that may be wrong. Data stored in a GEDCom file is being processed and stored in a database. By using D3.js, the data is then visualized in three different types of representations: an ancestor tree, a sunburst chart and a lifeline representation, all interacting with each other. The work concludes that by using different types of visualizations to present the same data, it is possible to create a genealogy application where new kind of insights about the data can be gained.
