Syntax Tree Viewer is a visualization tool for syntax trees in LaTeX-format. These precomputed sentence derivations will be rendered as bunches of syntax trees in a nice & ergonomic interface. The tool is targeted at educational purposes in linguistic courses at schools and universities.
The tool emerged from a students project, in which a PERL based sentence parser has been written, which derived possible sentence structures from English texts using a context-free grammar. Syntax Tree Viewer served as the visualization part of the toolset. The rendering of the tree structures was challenging; it turned out that using a 3D engine was a good choice for speed & interactivity reasons.
