Summary: One of the biggest challenges in data visualization is to find general representations of data that can display the multivariate structure of more than two variables. Several graphic types like mosaicplots, parallel coordinate plots, trellis displays, and the grand tour have been developed over the course of the last three decades. Each of these plots is introduced in a specific chapter of this handbook.
This chapter concentration investigating the strengths and weaknesses of these plots and techniques and contrast them in the light of data analysis problems.
One very important issue is the aspect of interactivity. Except for trellis displays, all the above plots need interactive features to rise to their full power. Some, like the grand tour, are only defined by using dynamic graphics.
