Eclipse SCADA has currently two main ways of visualizing information. Both are part of a rich client concept based on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP).

The Visual Interface (aka VI) is a dashboard like 2D vector visualization framework. See Section 5.2, “Visual Interface”.

The second one, the Detail Views are dialog like, form based, more structured and simpler views. See Section 5.3, “Detail Views”.
