Mirador is a tool for visual exploration of complex datasets. It enables users to discover correlation patterns and derive new hypotheses from the data.
Mirador is an open source project released under the GNU Public License v2. It is the result of a collaboration between the Sabeti Lab at Harvard University, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and Fathom Information Design. Initial support was provided by the Center of Communicable Disease Dynamics and the MIDAS network funded by the National Institutes of Health.
