This app provides an interactive environment to explore four and five dimensional data using some of MATLAB's abilities for volumetric visualization and animation. It was originally designed for data that was measured in a 3D grid of data points, for example temperature or wind speed taken at each point in a 3D space. If this data is taken over time, it can also be animated. However any data that fits the form v = f(x,y,z) or v = f(x,y,z,t) can be used.
If you have any ideas for enhancements or find any bugs, please let me know below. I'm open to adding more options/features if people find this useful.
Please use the 'Watch this file' option on this page to get auto updates when I add/fix things in the app.
Tested with 64-bit R2013a on Windows 7 and Debian 6. Should work on R2012b forward and on all platforms. You can extract the underlying files by unzipping the .mlappinstall file and using the DataExplorer class directly to run on older versions, no promises on compatibility though.
