What they say[edit]

“We have developed a new program, Dendroscope, for the interactive visualization and navigation of phylogenetic trees. The program provides all standard tree visualizations and is optimized to run interactively on trees containing hundreds of thousands of taxa. The program provides tree editing and graphics export capabilities. To support the inspection of large trees, Dendroscope offers a magnification tool. The software is written in Java 1.4 and installers are provided for Linux/Unix, MacOS X and Windows XP.

Dendroscope is a user-friendly program for visualizing and navigating phylogenetic trees, for both small and large datasets.”

Observations[edit]

This is mapping in a very specialised area, showing evolutionary connections, but I dare say it could be stretched to other forms of hiearchical visualization!
