Overview

This book explores a variety of graphical displays that are useful for visualizing multivariate data. The basic problem involves representing information that varies along several dimensions when the display medium (a computer screen or printed page) is inherently two-dimensional. In order to address this problem, William G Jacoby introduces the concept of a 'data space'.

Covers correlations between variable revealed by vectors & similarity of observations revealed by closeness of dots.
