Advanced visualization for OLAP
Data visualization is one of the big issues of database research. OLAP as a decision support technology is highly related to the developments of data visualization area. In this paper we demonstrate how the Cube Presentation Model (CPM), a novel presentational model for OLAP screens, can be naturally mapped on the Table Lens, which is an advanced visualization technique from the Human-Computer Interaction area, particularly tailored for cross-tab reports.

Finally, we discuss the necessity and the applicability of advanced visualization techniques in the presence of recent technological developments.
