access code

The maximum size of table that you can visualize is 30 × 30. This is to manage the load on the server.

If you need to visualize a table that is larger, email me with your name and organization and a brief description of your use of the tool. I will provide you with an access code that will remove this limitation.

Image settings

Settings are persistent and will apply to images generated from uploaded data, existing samples and randomly generated data.

There are many ways in which you can adjust the image. Read the documentation.

image setting groups

Data filters control which cell values are read in and processed.

Data encoding affects cell value transformations, such as scaling.

Adjust visibility and format of image elements with image format parameters.

Contribution tracks appear outside row/cell segments and show relative column and row sums.

Ribbon caps are placed at each end of a ribbon to indicate the color of the segment at the other end.

Ratio Layout

To use the ratio layout your table must be square and rows and columns must have the same names. In this layout, cells (A,B) and (B,A) are encoded by one ribbon, with variable-sized ends corresponding to the cell values. If your table does not conform, you will get errors.
