"This work is aimed to propose a way to create software applications with interactive visualization to help stakeholders present and analyze their ideas inside a decision making process. Software creation is a process that takes time and effort from software engineers, so the building process must be fast in order to be feasible and profitable for a stakeholder to create a tool from scratch instead of using a multi-purpose tool. Here we present a workflow and a framework to create this kind of analysis tools in a fast manner to help stakeholders with interactive visualizations that are aimed to get insights from their data. These applications are modeled based in two basic concepts: an Urban System Model and an Analysis Task Model. The first one is a hierarchical model aimed to design a city model that Will answer to the necessities of the modeler. The second one is the way to build a problem, named analysis task, in a systematic way in order to use software tools to try to solve it. We also present different successful study cases where this workflow was used in different levels of complexity"
