Prefuse is a set of software tools for creating rich interactive data visualizations. The original prefuse toolkit provides a visualization framework for the Java programming language. It is an extensible software framework used by developers to create visualization of information applications with Java language. It is possible to build stand-alone applications as well as components to include in other applications, and web applets. It is used to create visualizations of data, with visualization and animation tools.

Its features include data modeling and optimized data structures, encoding techniques, dynamic queries, integrated searching capabilities, hosting of layout and visual encoding techniques. There is a Beta version available for downloading. The Prefuse Flare version can be integrated with ActionScript and Adobe Flash Player. Both versions are available in GitHub. Prefuse Flare has a library to help with the creation of graphs and charts, supporting data management, visual encoding, animation, and interaction techniques. Its objective is to help manage data, with data maps and visual representations. It allows for the creation of structures with data attributes, indexing, selection queries and a memory footprint.

It is possible to perform searches and to write queries in an SQL like language. It is possible to change layouts and to animate and manipulate operations. Prefuse Flare has a modular design, and its open source code is available for developers to add new features and customize modules. There are seeded APIs to create personalized processing, interaction and rendering components. The software is sold under BSD (Berkeley Standard Distribution) licenses, which means that they can be downloaded for free. Prefuse has been used in academic and business fields, as well as for industrial research and school projects.
