Multivariate data that includes data records may be obtained, each of the data records represented as data values of data attribute variables. A cardinality of the data records is substantially large. A display layout template representing a collectivized visualization of dataset points is obtained, the collectivized visualization logically associated with a set of the data attribute variables, from a perspective of a user viewer. An individualized particulate display representation for each of the data records is determined, based on a portion of the data values associated with each respective data record. The individualized particulate display representation includes a discrete, individually selectable particulate shape and a display location relative to geometric bounds logically associated with the template. Display of the individualized particulate display representations is initiated in accordance with the template.
