Most software visualization tools are designed from a single-user perspective and are bound to the desktop, IDEs, and the web. Few tools are designed with sufficient support for the social aspects of software engineering such as collaboration, communication, and awareness. Our research aims at supporting co-located collaborative software analysis using software visualization techniques with multi-touch tables. The research will be conducted via user experiments which will inform the design of multi-touch software visualization applications and further our understanding of how developers work together with co-located collaborative tools.
