  1. Simple and useful advice. When you want to display more than 3 variables though is when things start to get a little dicey. Parallel coordinates and Heat Maps (check out a Magic Table implementation in the google visualization library are good ways to go about doing that. Parallel coordinates is actually really good at visually finding patterns.

    There’s also star coordinates for doing several variables at a time.
