Odds Plots: Finding Associations between Views of a Data Set

Werner Stuetzle
University of Washington (1987)
21:00 minutes

This video uses Stuetzle's Plot Windows system on a Symbolics LISP workstation. The video contains an early presentation of linked plots, using histograms as well as scatterplots, and there is a careful description of the use of brushing to find high-dimensional relationships in the data. (The video uses the "Swiss fertility data," data on breast cancer survival, and data on the Mount St. Helens earthquake.)

These frames show the use of an odds plot to highlight structure which is very difficult to discern in scatterplots, even with the advantages of linked views.

This video is of particular interest to people who would like to explore ways of representing or using odds plots.
