Big-data visualization experts make using scatter plots easier for today’s researchers

Scatter plots—which use horizontal and vertical axes to plot data points and display how much one variable is affected by another—have long been employed by researchers in various fields, but the era of Big Data, especially high-dimensional data, has caused certain problems. A data set containing thousands of variables—now exceedingly common—will result in an unwieldy number of scatter plots. If a researcher is to extract useful information from the plots, that number must be winnowed in some way. —> Read More
