Scatter Chart

Column Assignments

  • X-Axis - Assign a column you want to show at X-Axis. If it is a date / time column assigned, the axis will be automatically in time series. If it is a number based column, the axis will be for the continuous values. If it is a text based column, the axis will be for discrete values.
  • Y-Axis - Assign a column you want to show at Y-Axis. The assigned column is handled in the same way as X-Axis.
  • Z-Axis - Assign a column you want to show at Z-Axis. By assigning Z-Axis, the chart becomes 3D Scatter chart. The assigned column is handled in the same way as X-Axis. Note that on Windows with some hardware and driver, 3D scatter chart may not work. In that case, you can install DirectX 9 redistributable to make it work.
  • Size - Assign a column you want to apply the size on each circle. You can assign a number based column only.
  • Color - Take a look at Color section for more details.
  • Label - Assign a column you want to show in the balloon help that you see when you hover the marker such as dots. If you check the Show on plot option, the column values directly come up in the plot area.
  • Repeat By - You can assign a column to repeat the chart for each of its values. Take a look at Small Multiple section for more details.
