With increasingly complex digital simulations and computations, larger volumes of output are generated, and users must select a concise method of displaying the output and extracting relevant information. A set of imaging functions and display modes is developed to interpret data effectively for a wide range of applications. The imaging functions are complementary. Each function is useful for a different aspect of data interpretation. The relationships between variables and the global structures within the data are obtained with different display modes such as multiple windows and animation. With this set of complementary imaging functions and display modes, more information is obtained than with prior imaging methods. Also, more complex simulation studies are feasible since the results can now be visualized.
