Parallel Coordinate charts are a popular method for visualizing high-dimensional data. This visualization provides the ability to analyze multiple attributes across many measures, then interactively filter data across all measures simultaneously.

We're having lots of fun experimenting experimenting with various emerging visualization technologies and we would love to get your feedback.  Here are a couple of ways you can share:

* Update the [Parallel Coordinates enhancement ticket|http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/ANALYZER-1687]
** Post feedback about additional ideas for improvements
** Get out and vote\!  All of the visualizations we are sharing are prototypes which we can consider for inclusion in future GA releases of the Pentaho suite.  Voting for an enhancement is a great way to influence the priority in which we 'product-ize' these visualizations
* Tweet about it - got feedback or a cool example you've created and want to share? Tweet your comments or screenshots to #12DaysOfViz
