Incorporating 3D-Facilities into Statistical Graphs Using a Description-List-Based Data Presentation

  • Fred Hantelmann
Conference paper


Statistical graphs are powerful tools that help an analyst by offering him/her a quick impression on statistical properties on one or more sets of data. With increasing power of computers and graphical displays presentation of static 2D-images is only one goal of statistical graphs. Three-dimensional scenes with interactive manipulation of the view point as well as animated movies can now be computed in real time so that smooth variation of parameters from the underlying statistical model may be observed and analyzed.
