In my last post I mentioned that I had rewritten the Parallel Coordinates Plot to achieve a pretty drastic speed up. Before I get into the graphics hit detection trick at the heart of the performance boost, I’d like to explain the problem with the original implementation. The main thing that dragged down the first […]
