  1. David Röthlisberger, Oscar Nierstrasz, Stéphane Ducasse, Damien Pollet, and Romain Robbes. Supporting Task-oriented Navigation in IDEs with Configurable HeatMaps. In Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Program Comprehension (ICPC'09), p. 253—257, IEEE Computer Society, Los Alamitos, CA, USA, 2009. DOI 

    Mainstream IDEs generally rely on the static structure of a software project to support browsing and navigation. We propose HeatMaps, a simple but highly configurable technique to enrich the way an IDE displays the static structure of a software system with additional kinds of information. A heatmap highlights software artifacts according to various metric values, such as bright red or pale blue, to indicate their potential degree of interest. We present a prototype system that implements heatmaps, and we describe an initial study that assesses the degree to which different heatmaps effectively guide developers in navigating software.
