Interactive Visualization of Multidimensional Data

This thesis studies interaction in three conceptually different visualization techniques for multidimensional data: the reorderable matrix, parallel coordinates, and interactive glyphs, which include a new technique for processing a re orderable matrix visualization, enhancements to the user interface of parallel coordinate browsers, and a new visualization technique based on data glyphs and small multiple visualizations.
