Abstract

Dimensional Stacking is a technique for displaying multivariate data in two dimensional screen space. This technique involves the discretization and recursive embedding of dimensions, each resulting N-dimensional bin occupying a unique position on the screen. This thesis describes the extension of this technique to a three dimensional projection. In addition to the visual enhancements, hashing was used to improve the scalability of records and dimensions. The resulting visualization was evaluated by a usability study.
