    We propose using graph theoretic results to develop an infrastructure that tracks movement from a display of one set of variables to another. The illustrative example throughout is the real-time morphing of one scatterplot into another. Hurley and Oldford (2008a) made extensive use of the graph having variables as nodes and edges indicating a paired relationship between them. The present paper introduces several new graphs derivable from this one whose traversals can be described as particular movements through high dimensional spaces. These are connected to known results in graph theory and the graph theoretic results applied to the problem of visualizing high-dimensional data.
