1 dimension + 3 to 6 metrics or 2 dimensions + 1 metric

Compares several elements of a dimension on 2 - 6 metrics OR compares one metric on 2 dimensions. The dimension values are classified according to their score on the different metrics. Effective for detecting exceptions namely if a dimension value is remarkably high or low because it outperforms or underperforms on a certain metric.

A simple example

Let's say you want to sort your videos by performance in several metrics.

Try it with your own data on the Visualization Playground

Let's analyze a bit

At a glance, we can see that video 9 has all green indicators, meaning that it has performed solidly across all metrics.
Video 1 had a sizeable audience but wasn’t really shared, compared to video 7 which was shared yet had a smaller audience.
Video 6 performed well across metrics yet did not spur audience engagement in terms of comments.

Videos 5 and 8 were able to engage viewers in terms of view completion.
