The great challenge in parallel computing is to make a task of programming parallel machines easy while not sacrificing the efficiency of target code. One of the successful methodologies is to start from a high-level specification of the functional behaviour of a program by applying a sequence of optimising transformations tunedfor a particular architecture to generate a specification of the operational behaviour of a parallel program.<div></div> We believe that visualisation is an excellent way to bring this methodology to a wider programming community. In this paper we describe an interactive visual system which integrates 3D graphics, animation, and direct manipulation techniques into parallel programming environment.
