There is many data stored and exchanged in XML nowadays. However, understanding of the information included in large data-oriented XML instances may not be simple in contrast to the presentation of document-oriented XML instances. Moreover, acquaint the desired knowledge from complex XML data is hard or even impossible.

Although we propose two solutions for simple presentation and further analysis of the information, the main goal of the paper is to get a feedback from researchers and professionals who need to deal with large data-oriented XML in a discussion on the data visualization, modeling and understanding.
