  abstract     = {{ITER will produce large volumes of data that need to be visualized and analyzed. This paper describes the development of a graphical data visualization and exploration tool, MINT (Make Informative and Nice Trends), for plant engineers, operators and physicists. It describes the early development phase from requirements capture to first release covering the mistakes, lessons learnt and future steps. The requirements were collected by interviewing the various stakeholders. The initial neglect of the architecture and user-friendliness turned out to be key points when developing such a tool for a project with a long lifetime like ITER. Modular architecture and clear definition of generic interfaces (abstraction layer) is crucial for such a long lifetime project and makes it ready for future adaptations to new plotting, processing and GUI libraries. The MINT application is based upon the development of an independent plotting library, which acts as a wrapper to the underlying graphical library. This allows scientists and engineers to develop their own specific tools, which are immune to changes of graphical library. The development based on Python uses Qt5 as the visual backend.}},
