We present two complementary approaches for the visual- ization and interaction of dimensionally reduced data sets using hybridization interfaces. Our implementations privi- lege syncretic systems allowing one to explore combinations (hybrids) of disparate elements of a data set through their placement in a 2-D space. The first approach allows for the placement of data points anywhere on the plane according to an anticipated performance strategy. The contribution (weight) of each data point varies according to a power func- tion of the distance from the control cursor. The second approach uses constrained vertex colored triangulations of manifolds with labels placed at the vertices of triangular tiles. Weights are computed by barycentric projection of the control cursor position.
