SpreadPlots

SpreadPlots help you explore your data (and models of the data) to see what they seem to say.

SpreadPlots are state of the art: They are structured, multi-window, linked, dynamic and interactive.

  • Multi-Window: SpreadPlots are groups of several plot-windows.
  • Structured: Each plot-window show a particular aspect of your data or model.
  • Linked: The plot-windows can be linked by the data's observations or variables.
  • Dynamic: Each plot window shows a dynamic graphic. For example, spinplots spin to communicate 3D structure. Boxplots can show a moving parallel coordinate plot to communicate higher dimensional structure.
  • Interactive: You interact with the spinplot to make it spin, with the boxplot to move the parallel coordinate lines.

Here are three of the many spreadplots available in ViSta.
