Abstract

Various graphical methods are available for displaying one or more univariate distributions. In this article the folded empirical distribution function curve, or mountain plot, is described and compared to alternative plots. The mountain plot is a graphical display that complements other visual representations of the data, as is illustrated with several examples.
