    CASSATT: Coordinate Analysing Statistical Software Applying Tandem Transformations
    The interactive software CASSATT has been developed to visualise high-dimensional, multivariate data using parallel coordinates. CASSATT is platform independent and widens the range of methods for analysing parallel coordinate data. CASSATT uses interactive tools to extend the basic graphic displays.
