In this paper we explore the relationship between multivariate data analysis and techniques for graph drawing or graph layout. Although both classes of techniques were created for quite different purposes, we find many common principles and implementations. We start with a discussion of the data analysis techniques, in particular multiple correspondence analysis, multidimensional scaling, parallel coordinate plotting, and seriation. We then discuss parallels in the graph layout literature.
