Software Visualization encompasses the development and evaluation of methods for graphically representing different aspects of methods of software, including its structure, execution and evolution. Creating visualizations helps the user to better understand complex phenomena. It is also found by the software engineering community that visualization is essential and important. In order to visualize the evolution of the models in Model-Driven Software Evolution, authors have proposed a framework which consists of 7 key areas (views) and 22 key features for the assessment of Model Driven Software Evolution process and addresses a number of stakeholder concerns. The framework is derived by the application of the Goal Question Metric Paradigm.
