Paper Abstract

Existing, documented techniques for the presentation of higher dimensionaL information are characterized. Techniques include: Symbolic Star PLots, Chernoff Faces, Gtyphs, Boxes, Profile PLots, SymboLic Scatter PLots, KLeiner-Hartigan Tree SymboLs, GeneraLized Draftsman DispLays, Andrew's PLots, ParaLLeL Axes Graphics, and Cartesian Hyperspace Graphics. Each technique is evaLuated based on accuracy, simpLicity, clarity, appearance, well-designed structure, information leveL, dimansonaL capacity, flexibility, interpretability, visual impact, mastery time, and computational tractability. Strengths, weaknesses and applicabilities of each technique are determined. Techniques are categorized as symbolic and non-symbolic. Characteristics of each category are identified.
