VISPA Web Edition

The Visual Physics Analysis (VISPA) project provides a graphical development environment for data analysis. The new server-client-based web application of the VISPA project allows to perform physics analyses via a standard internet browser. This enables individual scientists to work with a large variety of devices, including touch screens, and teams of scientists to share, develop, and execute analyses on a server via the web interface.
