Abstract: This paper describes a free (as in freedom), extendable graphical framework, aflak, that provides a visualization environment in particular for astrophysical data set. By leveraging visual programming techniques via an approach based on an node editor, aflak allows the busy astronomer to conduct fined-grained processing on multi-spectral data sets. While connecting compute nodes together in the node editor, the final output of the transformations is smoothly displayed in a dedicated visualization window. This enables the astronomer to fine-tune all the interactive parameters of their program with a direct feedback loop.
