Spatial Tree View Demo

This is a Java application which will give you a pretty view of all the files in a given folder, including sub folders. It uses a rather clever algorithm (though I do say so myself) to lay things out as neatly as possible subject to the constraint that the size of a file / folder on screen is approximately proportional to its actual size. I call this a Spatial Tree View since it is (hopefully) an intuitive representation which utilises our natural ability to deal in visual abstractions.

Anyway enough bull. Click here to start the application via Java Web Start (Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) users should click here for a Java 1.4 version).


I hope the application should be fairly easy to use, but here are a few things you might like to know:


And just in case you're not convinced yet, here is a screenshot of the program in action so you can see how beautiful it is:
