The rationale of Econographicology revolves around the efficacy of multi-dimensional (MD) graphs in the storage of meta-database and visualization of multi-variable data behavior based on the application of Cartesian spaces (or MD Cartesian coordinate system). Thereby, the mission of Econographicology is to offer academics, researchers and policy maker's an alternative multi-dimensional graphical method in the research and teaching-learning process of economics, finance and business. In addition, the research involved is supported by three areas of research: MD-graphs design, MD-graphs application and MD-graphs simulations. The MD-graphs simulations are based on Real-time Meta-Data Multi-dimensional Graphical Analysis Scheme. At the inception of Econographicology, the following new types of Cartesian Spaces are presented: Pyramid Cartesian Space (P-Cartesian Space), Diamond Cartesian Space (D-Cartesian Space), Multi-Dimensional Cartesian Space (MD-Cartesian Space), Infinity Cartesian Space (I-Cartesian Space) and Multi-functional Cartesian Space (MF-Cartesian Space). These Cartesian Spaces are constructed based on the traditional 3-D space concept, but they represent 4-D, 5-D, 8-D, 9-D and Infinity-Dimension. The multiple-dimensional representations are to facilitate easy understanding of economic phenomena from a general view.
