Should you animate that plot?

Bad Reasons

  • It’s neat
  • I want to show off
  • One of my dimensions is time

Good Reasons

  • I have four or more meaningful data dimensions
  • I want to display many levels of a single dimension

Also: If you need to see all the data points at the same time, don’t use animation
