    Evaluation and assessment of various search and optimisation algorithms is subject of large research efforts. Particular interest of this study is global optimisation and presented approach is based on observation and visual evaluation of Real-Coded Genetic Algorithm, Particle Swarm Optimisation, Differential Evolution and Free Search, which are briefly described and used for experiments. 3D graphical views, generated by visualisation tool VOTASA, illustrate essential aspects of global search process such as divergence, convergence, dependence on initialisation and utilisation of accidental events. Discussion on potential benefits of visual analysis, supported with numerical results, which could be used for comparative assessment of other methods and directions for further research conclude presented study.
