GGobi is an open source visualization program for exploring high-dimensional data. It provides highly dynamic and interactive graphics such as tours, as well as familiar graphics such as the scatterplot, barchart and parallel coordinates plots. Plots are interactive and linked with brushing and identification.

GGobi is fully documented in the GGobi book: "Interactive and Dynamic Graphics for Data Analysis".

If you are interested in how GGobi came to be, you can read more about it on our history page.


These methods have grown from exploratory data analysis, an area pioneered by John Tukey, building on the current fast graphically capable desktop computers to enable highly interactive, real-time, dynamic exploration of data.

GGobi might not be exactly what you need, so have a look at Mondrian and Manet both produced by the RoSuDa group at the University of Augsburg. Currently, their categorical features are much stronger than GGobi's so be sure to check them out if you are analysing heavily categorical data.
