Create Your Own Visualisations

The sample visualisations you see on this website have the data embedded in them, and also information about how the data should be displayed when the visualisation is first opened. There are two ways you can create a visualisation for a data set you would like to explore:


  1. We have created shells for data sets with 3, 4 and 5 explanatory variables which read data from relatively simple text files. We have created a tutorial with a sample data set which takes you through how to create the text files needed. You can download a zip file (by clicking here) which contains the shells and the tutorial materials. You will need to change the extension of the file to .zip before you can unzip it.
  2. We have recently developed an interactive, web accessible version of our multi-variate plotters, which allow you to submit your own multi-dimensional data to our data interfaces. You data will be saved and you will be provided with a web link so that you can share your data with others. Click Here to visit our data interface
