  • ‘CurlyWhirly’ – multi-dimensional data visualizer

    This application helps to view multi-dimensional data, with a particular focus on the outputs of Principle Coordinate Analysis and Principal Components Analysis. The data can be viewed and selections can be made with the application of additional data resources such as categorical data. It is a powerful tool to discriminate similar germplasms by genetic distances analysis, or even to identify undesirable contaminations. CurlyWhirly was developed by James Hutton Institute, in collaboration with CIMMYT.

    Product details and features

    1. CurlyWhirly is a multidimensional data visualization application in a 3D space.

    3. Facilitates visualization of few to tens of thousands of data points. Hierarchical filtering of visible/selected points
    4. Creates movies and screenshots
    5. Phenotypic data can be added to data to aid interpretation
    6. Selection and export of data is possible for further analysis.
    7. Explore data available in the MasAgro-Biodiversity project.
    8. Multi-platform application available to the public to download
