*Extended abstract. VisTrails provides a scientific workflow infrastructure which can be combined with existing visualization systems and libraries. A key feature that sets VisTrails apart from previous visualization as well as scientific workflow systems is the support for data exploration. By maintaining detailed provenance of the exploration process — both within and across different versions of a dataflow — it allows scientists to easily navigate through the space of dataflows created for a given exploration task.
