Creating scatter plots
The scatter plot presents pairs of values from two or three measures.
This is useful when you want to show data where each instance has two numbers, for example, the relationship between Sales and Quantity per Customer. In the scatter plot below, a third measure (Cost) is used to generate the bubble size.
You can create a scatter plot on the sheet you are editing.
In a scatter plot you need one dimension and at least two measures. You can have maximum one dimension and three measures, where the third measure is visualized as bubble size.
Do the following:
- In a sheet, click to add a new visualization.
- Under Visualization, select Scatter plot.
Click Add and select a field or master dimension for the bubble dimension.
Click Add and select a field or master measure for the x-axis.
Click Add and select a field or master measure for the y-axis
Optionally, if you want bubble size to be set according to a third measure, click Add and select a field or master measure.
When you have created the scatter plot, you may want to adjust its appearance and other settings in the properties panel.
