Summary

Parall AX is a new user-friendly tool for visualizing and analyzing multivariate data using the parallel coordinates methodology. Complex queries are formed as logical combinations of a small number of atomic queries. Pre-processing facilities like banding, outlier-pruning, constrained permutations selection, wrapping and others are included. These and some more features are the basis towards automated search processes which are essential when categorizing data. In addition, the parallel coordinates display is dynamically linked to scatter plot displays, where the results of complex polygonal queries on one display are reflected on the other.

Key words: Visualization, Parallel coordinates, Data mining, Multivariate data analysis.
