Example Data

Here you can download example data to see Paver's fascinating performance.

The files are zip - archives; simply extract them into a directory of your choice. You will obtain a subfolder for each, containing the hierachy structure in two formats (path format and simple format), as well as mass data matching these hierarchies in csv (Character Separated Values) format. Technically, all files are simple text files containing the information which allows Paver to make those beautyful visualizations. Open them with an editor to see their structure.

  • Start Paver if it's not already running
  • In Paver's menu click on File -> New -> Treemap -> Simple Format (or Path Format) and navigate to the extracted "Example Treemap" folder
  • pick the file "Treemap_Simple_Format.tms" (resp. "Treemap_Path_Format.path") to load the hierarchy file
  • Now choose from Paver's menu Data -> Load Expression Data -> CSV Expression Data to load the data files as expression data.
  • In the file chooser you can pick one or both "Treemap_Data_X.csv" files (where X stands for a number)

For now you will notice two things:

  1. The representation is all blurred, except for a small region around your mouse pointer
  2. A big yellow stripe on the top of the window with a button on its left saying "Activate"

The blurred view is the demo view you will always get when loading own data without having either activated it or using the full license for Paver. To activate data, you can use the just appeared "Activate" button. Click on it, and you can enter credentials of an evaluation account to activate the example data for free:

User Name: eval
Password: paver

Make sure the Treemap and ExpressionData are selected and click on "Activate". After some seconds you will see the Activation Report in a small window and your blurred view becomes clear.

Once activated, these files will always stay activated on your computer, as long they are not modified. You can load them again and again later without having to activate them again.

Proceed the same way with the streamgraph examples, whith two exceptions:

  • for Streamgraph files, click on File -> New -> Stream Graph -> etc..
  • and instantly after having picked your Stream Graph file you are asked for the data files. Please note that for Stream Graphs you will need multiple data files, otherwise there's no 'stream' of data

Please note:

Our Examples can be activated for free on every computer as long as they are unmodified, when using the credentials of the Evaluation Account on our Consumable Server.

For loading your own data, you will need to have your own Consumable account, which should have enough credits for activating your data. For details please refer to this page.

Here are the downloads:

Treemap resulting from Example_Treemap.zip

This archive includes a hierarchy of 4 sublevels below root, containing 6 clusters on the first sublevel.
The quantitative data has been generated synthetically, showing some changes between the two data sets.

Resulting View from Example_1_Streamgraph.zip

This archive includes the same hierarchy as before, but just containing the first 4 clusters on the first sublevel.
The quantitative data has been generated synthetically as well, clusters are positively correlated.

Resulting View from Example_2_Streamgraph.zip

This archive includes the same hierarchy as the streamgraph data set before.
Again, the quantitative data has been generated synthetically, but some clusters are correlated with the others with a certain time shift.
