We present a navigatable multi-dimensional visualization of data named coaxial interactive visualization which is based on the coaxial axes. In this visualization, the dimensions of data in ndimensional space are mapped to n concentric circular axes drawn in a planar space with polar coordinates. A data item in ndimensional space is represented as a poly-curve with n vertices across all circular axes. Via the spatial distortion in polar system, the view of multi-dimensional data is interactively adjusted to satisfy viewers interest. The viewer, thus, can effectively navigate the underlying visual pattern to reach the great detail for uncovering trends and patterns in the visualization. One novelties of this work is performing focus+context viewing in polar coordinate system.
