Dimension 5

Miner3D is a visual data mining environment enabling a flexible analytical interaction with large datasets. Regardless of the user’s statistical or mathematical expertise or programming skills, Miner3D enables understanding of trends and relationships hidden in data.

Its powerful and intuitive user interface helps a researcher to accelerate scientific decision-making, achieving sophisticated insights and focusing on generating ideas and scientific results. A flexible user interface creates a number of various data models in seconds and empowers the user to generate and evaluate hypotheses.

Miner3D Professional edition also includes fast Principal Component Analysis and K-means Clustering algorithms.

Miner3D Chemical Structures plug-in integrates chemistry-related data like 2D molecules and drawings into data visualisations.

This all-visual application provides a nice replacement for text-based data analysis tools.
