H-tree Pedigree View - example showing 5 generations(31 people total)

The H-Tree is a structured, space-efficient technique for pedigree visualization (to display ancestral trees).

The H-tree based layout can be used to display ancestral trees. This layout increases the number of displayable generations, via a symmetrically arranged structure, provides the the user with an overview that allows them to understand and navigate through the data.

H-tree Pedigree View - Layout tab - default configuration options

You can configure the following options on the Layout tab:

  • [x]Show images
  • [x]Show tags
