Abstract: We present the design principles and current status of the Cube Analysis and Rendering Tool for Astronomy (CARTA). The CARTA project is designing a cube visualization tool for the Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimeter array. CARTA will join the domain-specific software already developed for millimetre-wave interferometry with sever-side visualization solution. This connection will enable archive-hosted exploration of three-dimensional data cubes. CARTA will also provide an indistinguishable desktop client. While such a goal is ambitious for a short project, the team is focusing on a well-developed framework which can readily accommodate community code development through plugins.
