[Disclaimer: I initially posted this question on stackOverflow 2 months ago and think it might be better suited for this forum (link to original question)]
The graph below shows a ranking of countries at 10 different points. The cool thing with this graph is that it allows you to track changes in the ranking over time. I want to create create something similar, but I have no idea how it was created...
My guess is that it was created using some design tool like adobe indesign, but my hope is that there might be some other tools for obtaining such a graphic using Mathematica? (e.g. using Mathematica's table and network functions?)
Any ideas and/or suggestions on where to look would be much appreciated.
This type of chart is used for many purposes. Here is another example of similar chart: (just for illustration purposes)
Update: @Dr.belisarius solution still stands strong as a great solution to my question from a few years ago now, but I wanted share the following:
- The graph I was looking for has a name and it is a parallel coordinates plot.
- For those interested, an alternative earlier Mathematica implementation of this can be found here: http://www.stats.uwo.ca/faculty/aim/2003/mviz/web/notebooks/default.htm
