    This thesis attempts to show a part of a collection of Slovenian folks songs using interactive data visualization. Data visualization is a presentation of a data set in a pictorial or graphic format, and it makes it easier for a user to grasp the meaning of data and the connections present. This visualization is using a list of folk song variant types with their respective variants as its data set. The work started with designing a plan for the functionalities and the look of the application that suited the goals. The data needed for the realization of the program was processed and after that followed the implementation itself. Tools and technologies used to make the application are listed in the thesis. The thesis includes a description of the history of folks songs and a short overview of collecting of lyrics and melodies in Slovenia. Some basic folk songs structures are explained, because the application is based on them. The result is a working application, which needs a few more iterations before it can be truly useful, but it can serve well as a basis for further development.
