Many datasets have multiple perspectives – e.g. time, space and description – and often summaries are required for these multiple perspectives concurrently. A design challenge is to provide such a concurrent summary of perspectives in ways that neither clutter nor visually overload. We report on a framework that helps us do this. We demonstrate its use with an implementation based on a Crime Pattern Analysis case study that produces synoptic summarises of spatial, temporal and descriptive information in crime reports. Our work with crime analysts suggests that the framework offers some potential for Crime Pattern Analysis.
