For data visualization, the spiral arrangement offers two significant advantages. Firstly, data with long axes can be visualized, enhancing visualization resolution. Secondly, time-series data may be used to reveal recurring patterns.
spiralize is an R package that offers a generic solution for displaying data on spirals. It has many graphics functions that allow users to construct self-defined high-level graphics quickly.
spiralize can be used for visualizing subtype classification, phylogenetic tree, pairwise alignment, etc.
The package spiralize and its documentation are available freely at the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=spiralize
