    For the past year I've been assisting with the development of Antaeus, a data visualization application. It is in many ways experimental. My role is mostly in the capacity of support--systems and network administration, quality assurance, some research, getting sodas from the fridge.

    The developer is a single individual who has spent many years thinking about the problem of data visualization. Throughout the ten years I've known him he's tried out a few other approaches, which we've never gone live with.

    We are now at a phase where we would like serious users of scientific data to try using Antaeus to look at their data and to hopefully provide feedback. We're particularly interested using such feedback to guide the evolution of Antaeus. Because the main goal is to eventually provide a tangible facility to the scientific community for the study of raw data, Antaeus is and will always be free for individual and academic use.

    The Antaeus installer is 16.3 Megs, and includes example data sets, including the Hipparcos catalog of star data--a public domain data set of about 120 thousand records. Although Antaeus can be used as a plot generator, it's really meant to be used to explore data interactively through the use of a sort of scatter plot matrix with supporting tools. Density and sunflower plots are included, as well as quantile and histogram plots. Subsets may be defined and explored independently in the same manner, or used as a brush.

    We're really wanting to find some scientific users of Antaeus who can tell us what it is they'd like to be able to accomplish with it in studying raw data. This is not a statistics package, but a supplement to such packages.

    Antaeus can be downloaded from http://antaeus-data.com/

    Feedback can be given using our support forum or via email, which can be found at our web site.

    I noticed some downloads from this post. If there are any questions regarding your exploration of Antaeus, please ask them here or at our support site. I'll be happy to answer or discuss anything.
