Homework 1 :
I will discuss about windirstat, a Disk space visualisation tool. It scans our hard drive and represents each file in a treemap as rectangles of different colors given the file type.
Which informations can we find on one of these treemaps ?
- Colors represents the file type :
- Rectangles sizes are proportional to the file they represent
- Adjacent rectangles are part of the same directory
- Clicking on a directory in the menu shows a white rectangle delimitating its content
- According to the programs website, the small bleaches on the rectangles are supposed to represent the directory structures.
