Here is a description of how I use the old bitmap version of the dendograms. They aren’t pretty, but they are functional.
In a current case I have an 80 group dendogram of GIS polygon types (997 objects, 114 attributes) derived from remote sensing of overstorey species, and we simply dump the *.den file into EXCEL and then add some explanatory variables next to the dendogram arms. It’s a really simply way to look at relationships in the hierarchy. If we need a publication quality dendogram then the PATNv3 version is far superior. I would like to keep doing the exploratory work with the old bitmap version as well if we can still export it in this format.
