Stacked displays are tailored to present data partitioned in a hierarchical structure. The basic idea is to embed one coordinate systems inside an other coordinate system. [Keim, 2002]
In case of multidimensional data, the data dimensions to be used for partitioning the data and building the hierarchy have to be selected appropriately. An example of a stacked display technique is Dimensional Stacking. […] Other examples of stacked display techniques include Worlds-within-Worlds, Treemap, and Cone Trees.
