Easy exploration of results
CanoDraw goes a step further than its predecessor CanoDraw
3.1 in supporting interactive exploration of graph contents.
When you position a mouse pointer over a symbol or arrow
in an ordination diagram, the status bar shows the identity of corresponding
variable (or sample). In addition, you can display one or two floating
windows (one for samples and one for any kind of variables), which are
then continuously updated with sample or variable summary characteristics,
as you place mouse pointer over various parts of ordination diagram.
If the "parental project" of a graph is open at the same
time, you can also right-click any selected variable and ask for attribute
plot summarizing pattern of values of this variable in the ordination space.
The less experienced users can also ask CanoDraw to provide
short suggestions how to interpret contents of the standard ordination
diagrams. The provided advice is supplemented by simple illustrations and
it is customized for the actual diagram contents and the type of ordination
