The Table Lens, developed at Xerox PARC, offers another interesting way of visualizing multi-dimensional data. Table Lens combines the textual information contained in database tables with graphical representations of the same data, as shown in Figure 22. This allows the user to focus on specific information in a specific part of a table while still getting a sense of how that information relates to the larger context of the entire table. This scheme gives the user a way of looking at and navigating through the information that makes understanding the information easier (Rao & Card, 1994).
