Why use GGEbiplot software


Graphical display is desirable, if not necessary, for a better understanding of large datasets with complex interconnectedness and interactions.  Hence the saying "One picture is worth a thousand words." The GGE biplot methodology is by far the most powerful "picture" for visualizing large two-way tables, particularly those from agricultural and life science researches. 


There is no argument among researchers whether biplot is useful in understanding their data. What limits the use of biplot by researchers is the availability of  user-friendly software. There are many macros in all major statistical packages, such as SAS, GenStat, R, etc.. However, they are not nearly as powerful and user-friendly as GGEbiplot, and their use requires considerable training. GGEbiplot is developed for all researchers, particularly for those who are not particularly trained in statistics and computer application.
