The first 3 columns in the table are dimensions (independent, categorical variables), and the other 3 columns are measures (dependent, quantitative variables). The measures are functions of the dimensions. Each combination of the values of the dimensions occurs once. Since there are 3 Regions, 12 Months, and 2 Products, there are 3x12x2 = 72 rows.

The Barchart Matrix below provides an overview of the data in the table. The 3 dimensions are crossed with the 3 measures to produce a matrix, with each cell showing one measure as a function of one dimension.

- The Generalized Pairs Plot / Generalized Plot Matrix (GPLOM): these techniques cross a set of
*both*dimensions and measures with the*entire*same set, and then display an appropriate chart within each cell of the resulting matrix.- Emerson, John W., Walton A.
