Summary: Ancient DNA datasets are increasingly difficult to visualize for users lacking computational experience. Here, we describe mapDATAge, which aims to provide user-friendly automated modules for the interactive mapping of allele, haplogroup and/or ancestry distributions through space and time. mapDATAge enhances collaborative data sharing while assisting the assessment and reporting of spatiotemporal patterns of genetic changes. Availability and implementation: mapDATAge is a Shiny R application designed for exploring spatiotemporal patterns in ancient DNA data through a graphical user interface.
