StratiGraph, a Java-based tool for computation and presentation of closure hierarchies of Jordan and Kronecker structures is presented. The tool is based on recent theoretical results on stratifications of orbits and bundles of matrices and matrix pencils. A stratification reveals the complete hierarchy of nearby structures. information critical for explaining the qualitative behaviour of linear systems under perturbations. StratiGraph facilitates the application of these theories and visualizes the resulting hierarchy as a graph. Nodes in the graph represent orbits or bundles of matrices or matrix pencils. Edges represent covering relations in the closure hierarchy. Given a Jordan or Kronecker structure, a user can obtain the complete information of nearby structures simply by mouse clicks on nodes of interest. This contribution gives an overview of the StratiGraph tool, presents its main functionalities and other features, and illustrates its use by sample applications.
