Most software development tools and applications are designed from a single-user perspective and are bound to the desktop and Integrated Development Environments (IDEs). These tools and applications make it hard for developers to analyse and interact with software artifacts collaboratively. We present SourceVisa multi-user collaborative software visualization application for use on large multi-touch tables. We describe the design and visualization features of SourceVis, present findings from a user study, and discuss the implications for building collaborative software visualization applications.
