circlize: Circular Visualization

Circular layout is an efficient way for the visualization of huge amounts of information. Here the circlize package provides an implementation of circular layout generation in R as well as an enhancement of available software. The flexibility of this package is based on the usage of low-level graphics functions such that self-defined high-level graphics can be easily implemented by users for specific purposes. Together with the seamless connection between the powerful computational and visual environment in R, circlize gives users more convenience and freedom to design figures for better understanding complex patterns behind multi-dimensional data.
