Abstract: Storyline visualizations are useful to let people explore works of literature. It was first introduced in XKCD's Movie Narrative Charts as a hand-drawn illustration . Tanahashi and Ma proposed some considerations on the design of the storyline visualization and automation became meaningful because of its aesthetic and clear representation style . Shixia Liu and Yingcai Wu's StoryFlow had become the next step in storyline visualization . With the efficient optimization approach on automation, representation of the complex stories became efficient and enabled users to track and understand the story easier. In all cases before generating the visualizations, an input file must be created manually. In this work we propose a semi-automatic exploratory visual tool for preparation of such input files.
