Tangled velocity structure in a massive stellar nursery

The figure below is an interactive supplement for my Sokolov et al. (2019) paper, where we used unsupervised hierarchical clustering algorithm to disentangle complex dynamics within a massive molecular cloud.

The figure, made in plotly, is a position-position-velocity diagram of the ammonia-derived kinematics within a massive filamentary infrared dark cloud G035.39-00.33. The velocity components identified with acorns are shown in different colors.
