# Example of how to use Parallel Coordinates View to plot and compare
# data set attributes, and then to use selections in the parallel coordinates
# view to extract and view data points associated with those selections
# Use the "u" character to toggle between "inspect modes" on the parallel
# coordinates view (i.e. between selecting data and manipulating axes)
# Note that no points will show up inside of the 3d box outline until you
# select some lines/curves in the parallel coordinates view
