The huge growth of Web in the last years has led to the demand for specialized applications, which operate in different devices, are secure and guarantee the constant provision of services to the user, under any circumstances. The model driven software development is a design technique which is based on model utilization and assists in the creation of software, which is extensible, reusable and comprehensible by different stakeholders. It contributes to the development of isolated modules with separated responsibilities. Another challenge of our time, is the daily touch with large amounts of complex data, which one must constantly study in order to draw conclusions and make decisions. Due to the way the human brain processes information, using charts or graphs to visualize data is easier than studying spreadsheets or reports. In this thesis, we developed a data visualization framework, which follows the principles of model driven programming. The hierarchical data format is utilized for storing complex multidimensional datasets. The framework consists of modules which contain generic code and are configurableby other modules. The system functionality is expanded, either through the development of a new independent module or via the growth of an existing one. The framework presentation is implemented through the creation of a web application, which operates as a data visualization tool, for networks of users working on the same projects. The framework, as well as the application, are mainly developed in the JavaScript programming language.
