Some of the possibilities for inferring the structure of complicated flows from simultaneous measurements at many points are reviewed. Conditional sampling, pseudo-flow visualization, stochastic estimation, and the proper orthogonal decomposition are briefly reviewed and illustrated by example. Resolution criteria for multipoint spatial arrays are proposed that minimize the possibilities for misinterpreting the data.
