The lines extending from the anchor points are controlled by p 2 and are only 20% of the maximum length. Tufte =-=[12]-=- suggested that these line extensions be included to enhance the utility of a scatter plot by showing the distribution of data along each axis. In Figure 3 the same data and the same arrangement of DA... |

By varying the 9 parameters and animating the arrangement of the dimensional anchors, one can move through this space and look at an incrementally defined subset of ... |
