We have developed a series of tutorials and videos describing key features of the NG-CHM Viewer:
|Quick Tour (ppt)
|Display Components and Interactivity Features
|Panning and Zooming
Next-Generation (Clustered) Heat Maps (NG-CHM) are highly interactive, dynamic (clustered) heat maps that enable the user to see an overview of the entire heat map, and via navigation controls, to zoom and pan across the heatmap to see details of the heatmap at many levels of resolution. Other controls enable searching for specific heatmap entries, generating production quality PDFs, and linking out to information related to rows, columns, and individual heatmap entries. The user interface is mostly intuitive, although a few less commonly used features can only be accessed with the use of specific keys.
This page describes how to navigate a NG-CHM using the NG-CHM Viewer. It presumes that you are interacting with a NG-CHM that has already been loaded on a NG-CHM web server. In addition to these pages, we have also produced a video describing the capabilities of the NG-CHM viewer.
If you know the name of the map, you can point a browser directly to it using the following URL format:
You can also see a searchable list of available maps by not specifying a specific NG-CHM name. For instance:
These examples use our NG-CHM server at MD Anderson. If the NG-CHM you wish to access is on a different server, you will need to substitute that server’s URL.
