Visualization package VTBeans
The VTBeans software package has been developed as part of the FLIERS project and used extensively by researchers at Leicester (and now by researchers around the world through the Web download). The package provides a palette of visualization tools, which can be dynamically linked to enable complex, multi-dimensional patterns to be viewed and explored simultaneously in a number of simpler co-ordinate spaces. The visualization tools includes some totally novel methods (e.g. random and serial animation), and some adaptations of familiar visual metaphors (e.g. fuzzy spectral signatures and interactive scatterplots). This allows the easy exploration of unfamiliar phenomena such as entropy and fuzzy membership, and gives the user great flexibility in selecting and linking co-ordinate spaces for visualization. The toolkit has been demonstrated at various conferences in Europe, Canada and Hong Kong, and has also been used to illustrate teaching of multivariate methods.
