Humans have a wonderful innate quality to produced and process visual patterns well beyond what a computer can anaylize. I am searching for interesting network data visualizations.


Bitviz is a Java-based visualization tool for network traffic and files. The tool turns bytes into square colors which are then placed in a floating grid to allow structures and patterns to emerge in the data.

The tool currently offers live and static analysis of PCAP data. It can also load any file type and display it. Currently, Bitviz has the following dependencies: jnetpcap, java, winpcap.

Bitviz is compatible with Windows, Linux and Freebd. Currently, it is in a closed beta, but will soon be available to other users as well when it will be launched on June 1st, 2012.
