To date, there is no convenient way telling whether a German court decision at hand is the most recent decision in the decision tree. Neither is there an overview of related decisions or relevance of decisions. One has to fight her way through the jungle of online database documents without knowing exactly where the next link will take her.
Based on OpenLegalData information, which contains German court decisions and their references, we aim to provide open access to maps based on this data. Ultimately, viz.law will be a plug-in which can be used on commercial legal databases.

Intuitively, one wishes to zoom out and see the bigger picture, see how all things are connected. This is what viz.law does: it provides a way to zoom out of the document jungle and helps finding relevant information on keywords or specific official file numbers. Searching for decisions referenced in a specific court ruling? Use viz.law!
