In this chapter, we define, characterize, and summarize the data and visualization techniques relating to temporal multivariate networks. Section 2.1.1 provides definitions and examples that characterize the networks we address in
this chapter. We further refine our definitions of time in Sect. 8.2. In Sect. 8.3, we survey representations for dynamic multivariate networks and provide a survey of visualization techniques. We describe the visualization of temporal multivariate networks in the domain of software engineering in Sect. 8.4. Finally, Sect. 8.5 describes open problems in this area.

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.
