Multivariate Biplot

 

When the data are read as 3-way parallel, 4-way parallel, or Any-way (multi-way), and when the Multivariate Biplot option under the main menu of "Anyway" is selected, the following form will appear:

 

 

This device allows generating all possible types of multi-trait biplots. In the current example, "genotype" was selected as the entries, so a genotype by trait biplot will be generated when this form is closed. 

 

If location and year are selected, then a environment by trait biplot will be generated, with the environment being a location-year combination. 

 

If genotype and location are both selected, then a phenotype by trait biplot will be generated, with the phenotype being a genotype-location combination. 

 

If genotype, location, and year are all selected, then a phenotype by trait biplot will be generated, with a phenotype being defined by a genotype-location-year combination. 

 

All possible types of multivariate biplots can be generated using this device.
