A Taxonomy of Visual Programming Languages

Since the 1970s a large variety of different kinds of visual programming languages have been developed. Curiously there exists no current and up-to-date survey of these languages, nor a taxonomy explaining the different approaches and what problems they solve. The goal of theis seminar project is to produce such a survey and a taxonomy by compiling a list of visual programming languages and classifying their features.
