Multidimensional Array - definition(s)

Multidimensional Array - A group of data cells arranged by the dimensions of the data. For example, a spreadsheet exemplifies a two- dimensional array with the data cells arranged in rows and columns, each being a dimension. A three-dimensional array can be visualized as a cube with each dimension forming a side of the cube, including any slice parallel with that side. Higher dimensional arrays have no physical metaphor, but they organize the data in the way users think of their enterprise. Typical enterprise dimensions are time, measures, products, geographical regions, sales channels, etc.
