The PlotsOfData app plots the data and statistics to enable the comparison of (experimental) conditions. The philosophy of the approach is that plotting the raw data (instead of a summary) improves transparency and interpretation. To further facilitate the comparison, summary statistics (mean, median, boxplot, violinplot) and inferential statistics (confidence intervals) can be added. The user has full control over the visibility of the raw data and statistics by adjustment of the transparency (alpha).

  • Allows tidy and wide data format as input
  • Ability to clone settings
  • User customizable tabel with statistics

Example visualizations:


Example 2 is not working?!

Thanks for trying it out!
The second example uses data in tidy format - the tick box "These data are Tidy" needs to be activated.

Best, Joachim.

Very cool! I especially like the variety of colorblind-safe palettes. :art:
