Teallach: Systematic Generic Support for User Interfaces to Databases

01/09/1996 - 30/11/1999

A research project aiming to provide a software workbench which facilitates the rapid in a manner which is independent of any specific underlying database system. This will provide a means for moving database interface development from an ad hoc, system-specific context towards more general and well founded solutions. EPSRC ref GR/L02708.
Teallach: Systematic Generic Support for User Interfaces to Databases is a Research Councils project funded by EPSRC. Carried out in collaboration with Norman W. Paton, Richard Cooper, Carole Goble, Philip Gray and others. For further information please refer to http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/research/teallach/.

  • Information Visualisation
    Information visualisation is the use of enhanced Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) to communicate and interact with complex data sets such as social networks, multiattribute tables, and financial data. Pages of text and numbers are not the most effective way to communicate or understand information.
