Supporting Fine-grained Data Lineage in a Database Visualization Environment

  title={Supporting Fine-grained Data Lineage in a Database Visualization Environment},

The lineage of a datum records its processing history. Because such information can be used to trace the source of anomalies and errors in processed data sets, it is valuable to users for a variety of applications including investigation of anomalies and debugging.
