Abstract
Algorithm visualizations (AVs) have become a popular teaching aid in classes on algorithms and data structures. The AlgoViz Project attempts to provide an online venue for educators, students, developers,researchers, and other AV users.

The Project is comprised of two websites. The first, the AlgoViz Portal, provides two major informational resources: an AV catalog that provides both descriptive and evaluative metadata of indexed visualizations, and an annotated bibliography of research literature. Both resources have over 500 entries and are actively updated by the AV community. The Portal also provides field reports, discussion forums, and other community-building mechanisms. The second website, OpenAlgoViz, is a SourceForge site intended to showcase exemplary AVs, as well as provide logistical and hosting support to AV developers.
