Explorer3D is a software for classification and 3D visualisation written in Java.
It allows for object projection in a 3D space based on PCA and other dimensionality reduction methods. Depending on source data, MDS is also available. Kernel extensions have also been integrated.
Various data manipulation tools are available, such as: synthetical view of classes (elipsoids, convex envelop), visualization of pictures associated with the objects, simultaneous multiple views with various projection methods, zooms, and so on.
Explorer3D supports multi source data by simultaneously displaying sources on several 3D scenes, and allowing the user to identify objects amongst these scenes.
3D spatial manipulation is done by the mean of a standard mouse.

The graphical interface relies on java3D, is publicly available, and can be separately downloaded (see 3D4J).

Javafx version

To adapt Explorer3D to recent java 3D libraries, its 3D interface is now based on JavaFX (2017). With this version, there is no more need to install java3D. Most of former Explorer3D functionalities remain available.

Explorer3D has been developed and maintained by Lionel Martin and Matthieu Exbrayat, Université d'Orléans, 2009-2017 (copyright).
