When displaying statistical information in coordinate systems, you will often encounter the problem that your raw material has more dimensions than suitable display methods can support. An ordinary Cartesian coordinate grid has a maximum of three dimensions to offer (unless one of your data dimensions is a time component).
It is important to note that the patterns are offered as proposed sets of design guidelines. They are NOT the only solutions, strict recipes etched in stone, or a substitute for sound human-centered design practices. In our view, it is essential to select and apply the patterns critically and thoughtfully based on an understanding of the users - their level of knowledge, their discovery scenarios and goals, and their modes of information discovery. For example, some UI patterns work well for the "knowledgeable seeker" but not the "uncertain explorer." For more information about how to effectively use the patterns, you can download Applying Endeca Search & Discovery UI Design Patterns .
