This paper argues for the creation of a software repository for research and education in information visualization (IV). It starts with an introduction and overview of IV online resources and software repositories. Next, we introduce the code repository we created and demonstrate how it was used in the IV course one of the authors teaches. Sample implementations by students are presented as well. We conclude with a discussion of ways to grow and maintain the software repository and invite contributions.
The main software repository web page is accessible at http://ella.slis.indiana.edu/~katy/L697/code/.
