This program is meant to help visualize and explain cybersecurity competitions to people who do not understand the field of cybersecurity or its many complexities. This visualizer begins running by reading-in competition data and displaying it with clear graphics to help viewers process the information in a presentable manner. In CCDC-mode, the visualizer itself displays one team's network at-a-time. Each network has various nodes, with bar charts next to them which display a ratio of time the machine is working vs time the machine is shut down or not working. The visualizer can also display "injects", which are business tasks the teams must complete while defending themselves. Other than that, the visualizer in CCDC-mode can display hackers' attacks to viewers with short, cartoon-ey videos to explain what these attacks entail and the scale they occur on.
