# Parallel coordinates

Summary: This example shows how to create parallel coordinates plot in F#.

let's first create some data for the purpose of creating example charts:

open Plotly.NET

let data =
[
"A",[1.;4.;3.4;0.7;]
"B",[3.;1.5;1.7;2.3;]
"C",[2.;4.;3.1;5.]
"D",[4.;2.;2.;4.;]
]


Parallel coordinates are a common way of visualizing high-dimensional geometry and analyzing multivariate data. To show a set of points in an n-dimensional space, a backdrop is drawn consisting of n parallel lines, typically vertical and equally spaced. A point in n-dimensional space is represented as a polyline with vertices on the parallel axes; the position of the vertex on the i-th axis corresponds to the i-th coordinate of the point.

let parcoords1 =
Chart.ParallelCoord(data,Color="blue")

// Dynamic object version
let parcoords =
let v = [|
Dimensions.init([|1.;4.;|],
StyleParam.Range.MinMax (1.,5.),StyleParam.Range.MinMax (1.,2.),Label="A");
Dimensions.init([|3.;1.5;|],
StyleParam.Range.MinMax (1.,5.),Label="B",Tickvals=[|1.5;3.;4.;5.;|]);
Dimensions.init([|2.;4.;|],
StyleParam.Range.MinMax (1.,5.),Label="C",Tickvals=[|1.;2.;4.;5.;|],
TickText=[|"txt 1";"txt 2";"txt 4";"txt 5";|]);
Dimensions.init([|4.;2.;|],
StyleParam.Range.MinMax (1.,5.),Label="D");
|]

let dyn = Trace("parcoords")

dyn?dimensions <- v
dyn?line <- Line.init(Color = "blue")

dyn
