Scatter

Powerful scatter plot with optional time slider, mini charts, and tracker lines

How to use this template

Scatter

A template for creating two-dimensional scatter plots, ideal for showing correlation, trends and outliers. Extra information can be encoded using colour, shape and size, and data can be divided (or “faceted”) into multiple smaller datasets using the “Grid of charts” feature.

Data requirements

To make a simple scatter chart, all you need is two columns of data: one for the x (horizontal) axis and one for the y (vertical) axis. Each row is plotted as a “dot”, and the spread of dots on the chart shows the relationship between the two metrics. Addition columns can be used to set the colour, size and shape of the dots, or to create interactive controls and custom popups.

Showing change over time

If your data has a column with years or dates, you can create an animated scatter showing change over time, as popularised by Hans Rosling’s famous TED talks. Select a “Time” column to create a slider and choose one or more “Name” columns so the template knows which rows represent the same thing. Rows with the same name will be animated through time and also joined together with lines (which can styled or turned off in the settings panel).

Tips

  • Overwhelmed by the number of points? Choose a “Filter” column to create a menu to switch between subsets of the data.
  • Want to compare subsets alongside each other? Select a “Grid of charts” column to create an array of mini charts.
  • Want to show a custom popup? You can include as many “Info” columns as you like, and advanced users can even use HTML and CSS to pull in pictures from a column of image URLs.
  • Try making a Flourish story to guide an audience through different views of your scatter visualisation.

This section documents API usage specific to this template, so for an introduction we suggest you refer to the generic API documentation instead.

Template data

There are two different formats in which you can supply data to this template. Which one will be more convenient for you likely depends on the source of your data, as described below.

Array of objects with arbitrary keys, and a bindings object

This format is most likely useful when you have data from an external source, such as CSV data loaded from d3-dsv. You should supply this attached to the opts.data, which might look like:

    {
        data: [
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }

... but with the keys being the column headers from your source data instead. To tell the API how these values from each column should be associated with the keys that the template is expecting, you must also supply an object attached to opts.bindings. (The meanings of the keys in the bindings object are documented below.) The minimal bindings you can supply for this template are as shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/scatter",
    version: "12",
    bindings: {
        data: {
            
        }
    },
    data: {
        data: [
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

All possible bindings that you can supply are shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/scatter",
    version: "12",
    bindings: {
        data: {
            x: "DataHeader1",
            y: "DataHeader2",
            name: ["DataHeader3", "DataHeader4", ...],
            color: "DataHeader5",
            size: "DataHeader6",
            shape: "DataHeader7",
            facet: "DataHeader8",
            slider: "DataHeader9",
            series: "DataHeader10",
            filter: "DataHeader11",
            metadata: ["DataHeader12", "DataHeader13", ...]
        }
    },
    data: {
        data: [
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

(As before, the keys containing "Header" would be replaced by column names from your data source.)

Array of objects with template-defined keys

There is an alternative format you can use, which is likely to be easier to use if your data is not from a spreadsheet source. With this alternative format you supply your data to the template as an array of objects, attached to opts.data, where the keys must be those used by the template, as documented below. In this case there is no need to supply a bindings object, since the key names are already those expected by the template. The required properties in the data object are as follows (scroll down for a description of what each property is):

{
template: "@flourish/scatter",
version: "12",
data: {
    data: [
        {
            name: [...],
            metadata: [...]
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

And the full list of all possible properties is as follows:

{
template: "@flourish/scatter",
version: "12",
data: {
    data: [
        {
            x: ...,
            y: ...,
            name: [...],
            color: ...,
            size: ...,
            shape: ...,
            facet: ...,
            slider: ...,
            series: ...,
            filter: ...,
            metadata: [...]
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

  • data.y: y
