The new facilities offered by computer controlled data capturing devices allow one to open the field of data acquisition from one or two-dimensional spaces to multi-dimensional ones. The methods used for analysing and processing such data sets have to move in parallel towards multi-dimensionality. Multivariate Statistical Analysis is one of the tools which appear to be promising in : data analysis, data reduction, data processing (multivariate noise filtering), data interpolation and extrapolation. Illustrations of these different possibilities are given in the fields of spatially resolved spectroscopy, time-dependent spectroscopy and elemental mapping from Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy.
