The scatter plot

The scatter plot shows the correlation between two numbers (X and Y). Each data series (set of data dots) is color coded.

 

A few points about the scatter plot

  • The X axis must be a numeric, only SharePoint numeric columns (include currency) are available for X
  • The Y axis must be a numeric, only SharePoint numeric columns (include currency) are available for Y
  • Multi-series is supported, meaning multiple sets of Y value can be rendered on the same graph
  • The scatter supports live data updates from SharePoint, meaning when the underlying SharePoint list data changes, the graph will gracefully update itself

Here is an example of a single-series scatter plot (see below example live):

single-series-scatter

Here is an example of a multi-series scatter plot (see below example live):

multi-series-scatter

Visual range

When rendering, the visualizer will determine the visual range on the X and Y axis from data, from example, if the minimum and maximum value from your data is 2 and 5, respectively, then the axis will begin at 2 and end at 5.

visual-range-scatter

However, users have the option to override these ranges, on both X and Y axis

visual-range-scatter-config

After applying a user range, the scatter plot in the above example looks like this:

visual-range-scatter-after

Please note, the visualizer will take into account both range user inputted and the data range from data, and use the most inclusive range.
