What is a Scatter Plot?
A scatter plot is a type of data visualization that shows the relationship between different variables. If you have two variables that pair well together, plotting them on a scatter diagram is a great way to view their relationship and see if it’s a positive or negative correlation.
Use the scatter plot maker to visualize relationships in different data variables.

How to Use the Scatter Plot Maker
- To ensure that the visualization of your data is not distorted, make sure to avoid starting your axes at a value other than zero.
- You can also visualize a third variable by modifying the size of your dots in accordance with these values.
- Use lines to help you visualize trends and correlations between variables.
- Avoid adding too many trend lines that can distract and confuse the viewer.
- Detect patterns in your data, such as a positive correlation, which is displayed as a line that moves upwards and to the right, as both values increase at the same time.
- Identify a negative correlation, which is a line with a negative slope, that moves downwards and to the right, as one value increases while the other decreases.
- A group of dots with no correlation will appear as a group of dots with no discernible pattern.
- A linear trend is a group of dots that appears to form a trend line, one that either goes up or goes down as the values increase on the X axis.
- An exponential trend is a group of dots that can be represented as a curved line that rises or falls at an increasingly higher rate.
- Lastly, you can identify outliers as dots that are extreme values, far from the majority of data points.
