Parallel coordinates plot

`parallelcoords(x)`

`parallelcoords(x,Name,Value)`

`parallelcoords(ax,___)`

`h = parallelcoords(___)`

`parallelcoords(`

creates
a parallel coordinates plot of the multivariate data in the matrix `x`

)`x`

.
Use a parallel coordinates plot to visualize high dimensional data,
where each observation is represented by the sequence of its coordinate
values plotted against their coordinate indices.

`parallelcoords(`

creates
a parallel coordinates plot with additional options specified by one
or more `x`

,`Name,Value`

)`Name,Value`

pair arguments. For example,
you can standardize the data in `x`

or label the
coordinate tick marks along the horizontal axis of the plot.

`parallelcoords(`

creates
a parallel coordinates plot using the axes specified by the axes graphic
object `ax`

,___)`ax`

, using any of the previous syntaxes.

Alternatively, you can create a `ParallelCoordinatesPlot`

object by
using the `parallelplot`

function.

Unlike the

`parallelcoords`

function,`parallelplot`

allows you to plot tabular data that includes categorical variables.`parallelplot`

does not support the plotting of quantiles for numeric data. However, the`ParallelCoordinatesPlot`

object contains the`DataNormalization`

property, which provides several data normalization methods for coordinates with numeric values.

To control the appearance and behavior of the object, change the ParallelCoordinatesPlot Properties.
