arithmetic is used to transform the axes of the
multi-dimensional data space so that minimal information is lost
after projection (flattening) onto a 2D plane. The biplot
display form has long been used in the social sciences but was
introduced as a flow cytometry display form by Bruce Bagwell
coding in the following figure is according to ACluE
cluster analysis but may be based on existing regions or
gates or on pseudo colour.
displays are useful in spreading the populations present in a
data file thus avoiding the considerable effort of devising a
suitable set of conventional 2D displays to achieve that result.
In Weasel, biplot populations can be enclosed in regions as for
conventional displays and those regions may be used in gating.
