RDP's Taxomatic provides an intuitive way to examine the relationship between thousands of sequences and aids in finding taxonomic anomalies (misplaced sequences stand out as stark contrasts).
Taxomatic was conceived as a tool for aiding in the interpretation of large-scale phylogenetic trees and provides an interactive heatmap representation of distance matrices (zoom and pan, tool tips with organism information on mouseover, user-selected color scale shows minimum/maximum distance).
