Parallel Coordinates

A Parallel Coordinates dashboard takes two or more columns and draws parallel lines between them. All Parellel Coordinates appear on the same vertical axis. As a result, if the range of one column is much higher than the others, smaller-valued columns may not be visible. Note: this applies all plot and dial panel types. To generate a Parallel Coordinates dashboard:

  • Select the Parallel Coordinates tab in the Custom Dashboard commands.
  • Select a column to serve as a Key Value. The key column is a partition key, a value to group the rows by, or in this case, the visualization of the rows. This column should have a limited number of values.
  • Add columns to the Data columns field.

Note: Columns should have values in the same range. Otherwise, the dashboard will not work properly.

  • Click the + icon to add the suggestion to the Script.
  • Click the Dashboard icon (/images/sl/sl_view_custom_dashboard.png) in the script.
  • The Parallel Coordinates dashboard opens.

Once the dashboard opens, you can modify it with panel preferences or by modifying the layout.
