This paper describes a tool called ExploraTool to visualise, explore and graphically query large repositories ofsimulations. Instead of starting with the empty list, ExploraTool provides an initial overview of the repository content, progressively grouping the simulations by their main attributes, suchas brand, vehicle model, power source, engine type and so on.Users can interactively navigate the repository view through drill down, roll-up and rearrangement operations. In this way, using the ExploraTool, simulation analysts can visualise, explore and filter large repository of simulations as well as select groups of simulations to compare their performances.
