Fishery dataset: an analysis based on robust dynamic linking and brushing

This movie shows that linking different forward plots can help in finding unexpected patterns in real complex data. The example is about international trade data characterised by many informative variables. Here the forward search is used to analyse the value and the quantity traded among the European Union and a specific third country.
