This paper reviews the state of the art in online visualization of legislation. It reviews practice, particularly in public good and official sites. The review establishes a considerable diversity of practice but an absence of an apparent best practice. Drawing on information visualization and knowledge visualization, the paper discusses the need for a theoretical framework for legislative visualization and for evaluation. Work on the visualization of definitions is presented.
