Title: Systems and methods of generating data marks in data visualizations

Abstract

An example method of displaying a data visualization includes displaying a graphical user interface that includes three distinct regions, and receiving user actions to associate two different fields with two different shelves. The method also includes generating, in accordance with the received user actions, data marks to be displayed in a data visualization, each data mark corresponding to a respective retrieved tuple of data from a multidimensional database, where (i) each data mark has an x-position defined according to data for a first field in the respective tuple and (ii) each data mark has a y-position defined according to data for a second field in the respective tuple. The method also includes displaying a data visualization that includes the generated data marks.
