This is very nice. For more info on Parallel Coordinates (||-coords) I recommend


This book was praised by Stephen Hawking among others. Chapter 10 has many examples of real multivariate

data explorations (some with hundreds of variables) with stunning results and other applications to Air Traffic

Control, Optimization etc. The patterns representing relations are compact and informative. See the patterns for Lines, Planes, Curves Surfaces in N-space as well as a Topology for Proximity.


Hope that you will enjoy and find the book useful. Questions and critique are welcome

Thanks so much for creating this visual. I love it.


Can I suggest one possible improvment?

When you hover over (or select) a line, it doesn't show category value. Eg. if each line represents a city, when you hover over or select a line it doens't say which city you are looking at. If you can make category name appear it will be much easier for the user to compare between different lines.

Is there way to filter text columns as well as numerical columns? for example: i'm measuring reflectance values on a certain wall and have certain values but then i also want to filter by wall color and maybe the paint brand. right now it seems that this only work for 1 text column as the categories and then everything else is numberical....
