Abstract

When visualizing multivariate data as parallel coordinates, although it is convenient to view the relationship between two adjacent dimensions, the exploring of the relationships among three or more nonadjacent dimensions is relatively difficult. In this paper, we propose a way to solve this problem by using axis-translation method and axis-comparison method, which can keep the original positions of axes and exploring the relationships among three or more nonadjacent dimensions.
