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.
Current version tested with 64-bit R2013b on Windows 7, should work on other platforms as well. The source code for the app is now included as well. You can try to run this on older versions that do not support apps by running the DataExplorer class file. You will need to add the GUILayout-v1p12 folder and subfolders to your path.
