I have created a webpage called PhyloGeographer to facilitate research into the geographical origins of Y-haplogroups. It's free to use. It seems I am not allowed to post links.

There is an interactive tool you can use to view computed geographic origins of clades and migration paths. I hope it is easy to use. Just select "J-M241" from the dropdown and then click on whatever clade and viewing mode you want.

The visualization is based on anonymized kits from FTDNA, YFull and also the ancient Armenian RISE408.

Note: This is a visualization tool intended to help inform possible migration paths. It uses a simple method that cannot possibly account for every type of actual migration behavior, which are complex historical processes.
I am not advocating that every clade origin and path shown is the historical truth, merely that my method indicates these locations given the data we have, incomplete as it may be.

The method is probably more reliable for the clades of the last few thousand years.

Over time it is my goal to improve the complexity of the algorithm.

Any project administrators interested in using the tool to visualize potential clade origins using an objective method, please follow the instructions at "Create a New Project".

Once you are sure your data is formatted correctly and complete, contact me either here or in the facebook group and I will add it to the project selection dropdown.

All feedback is welcome. Once enough projects are interested in and using this tool I would like to begin work on version 2 of the clade locator algorithm that will support more bells and whistles.

Seems a very cool project ( https://phylogeographer.com/tool/ ). I was searching for a similar visualization tool for the R1a haplogroup tree.

I found this one: https://www.familytreedna.com/public/R1a?iframe=ymap but it has a flat structure. It would be really cool I think to somehow import the data from https://www.familytreedna.com/public/R1a?iframe=ymap to https://phylogeographer.com/tool/ and have this nice tree for navigation purposes.
