The BiplotGUI package for R makes it easy to construct and interact with biplots.
Biplots can be interpreted as graphs in which observations are represented as points while, simultaneously, variables are represented as calibrated biplot axes. Such representations make it easy to visualise multivariate data in two or three dimensions. The biplots of the BiplotGUI package are based on the book by Gower and Hand (1996) and can be thought of as multivariate analogues of the ordinary scatter plot.

Other biplot packages in R
The calibrations of the calibrate package correspond to those of Gower and Hand (1996), and therefore with those of the BiplotGUI package for linear biplots.
