## Abstract

A method of plotting data of more than two dimensions is proposed. Each data point, $x = (x_1, \cdots , x_k$), is mapped into a function of the form $$f_x(t) = x_1/\sqrt{2} + x_2 \text{sin} t + x_3 cos t + x_4 \text{sin} 2t + x_5 \text{cos} 2t + \cdots,$$ and the function is plotted on the range -$\pi$ < t < $\pi$. Some statistical properties of the method are explored. The application of the method is illustrated with an example from anthropology.
