ParallelCoordinates Chart

Parallel plot or Parallel Coordinates plot allows to compare the feature of several individual observations on a set of numeric variables. Each vertical bar represents a variable and usually has its own scale. (The units can even be different). Values are then plotted as series of lines connected across each axis. Parallel plot is the equivalent of a spider chart, but with cartesian coordinates. Thus, it is often prefered.
