American writer Dave Eggers, named one of 50 Visionaries Who Are Changing the World, wrote that “Three-dimensional results are important to me. I did once spend some time just writing, and floating around, and I lost my mind a little bit. I wasn’t so good at that.”

CDD Vault Visualization Includes 3D Scatterplots

In support of three-dimensional results, CDD is happy to announce that you can now generate 3D Scatterplots within the CDD Vault Visualization tool. Just choose the “Add 3D scatterplot” option from the Actions menu.

You can then:

  • Set the data fields to display on the X, Y and Z axes
  • Set color, shape and size of the data points the same way as you’ve done with the 2D scatterplot
  • Click and drag to rotate and pivot the 3D plot
  • Scroll to zoom into particular areas within the plot

Noteworthy tip:

  • Remember, you can plot data which may not yet be registered/imported into your CDD Vault by launching a new session or simply dragging a file directly into an active session of the CDD Vault Visualization

Renaming/Reordering/Hiding Data Columns in CDD Vault Visualization

All parameters can be renamed and the new name will be used throughout your Visualization session (axis labels, pinned Entity boxes, data table headers, etc). The labels can be updated either in the Tooltip settings window or in the Columns section of the Data Table settings menu.

Click the Data Table Settings button and navigate to the “Columns” tab. Here, you can:

  • edit the names of the columns
    • click in the label box and type the name you wish to use
    • once updated, you can always reset to the original name by clicking the icon next to the text
  • reorder them within the Data Table
    • click the move icon to the right of any data field
    • drag the field up or down, to the desired position within the list
  • use the check boxes to hide/show columns
