Interactive Merger Trees

  • 28 Jun '22


On the Illustris Data Access Background/Details page, it is stated that a merger tree tool is available: "As a demonstration of the potential of rich client applications built on top of the Illustris API, the above figure shows a snapshot of the current available interface for interactively exploring the merger trees." Where can I find this tool online? I see links to the other online tools described (Subhalo Search Form and Explorer), but not the merger tree tool... Is this same tool available for the TNG simulations? I see the merger tree visualization as PNG for selected subhalos/snapshots but am not sure how to access an interactive tree...

Please advise. Thanks!

You can find this, for example, on any results page in the Subhalo Search. It is launched by clicking the little tree icon:


on each row.
