Andrews' Plots for Extended Uses

Andrews (1972) proposed to combine trigonometric functions to represent n observations of p variates, where the coefficients in linear sums are taken from the values of corresponding observation's respective variates. By viewing Andrews' plot as a collection of n trajectories of p-dimensional objects (observations) as a weighting point loaded with dimensional weights moves along a certain path on the hyper-dimensional sphere, we develop graphical techniques for further uses in data visualization. Specifically, we show that the parallel coordinate plot is a special case of Andrews' plot and we demonstrate the versatility of Andrews' plot with a projection pursuit engine.
