In this paper, an uncommon use of parallel coordinates is illustrated using the Animator software. Animator is used to plot the parallel coordinates of objects in multi-dimensional space. Subsequently, the Animator software is used to animate the movement of individual objects, in this multi-dimensional space over time. Initial empirical studies of this technique for the visualization of data from Neurophysiological research, multi-dimensional spike train datasets, have shown that the technique is useful. Thus, Animator was developed for public access and is now freely available (including source code) from the Visualization Lab at the University of Plymouth, www.plymouth.ac.uk/infovis.
