Scatter Matrix

The Scatter Matrix panel takes two or more data columns and plots them against each other in every possible combination. For example, if you have two columns, A and B, running the Scatter Matrix dashboard results in four plots:

  • *A on X axis/B on Y axis
  • *A on X axis/A on Y axis
  • *B on X axis/A on Y axis
  • *B on X axis, B on Y axis

Selecting three columns would result in nine combinations, four in sixteen combinations, and so on.

To generate a Scatter Matrix dashboard:

  • Select the Scatter Matrix tab in the Custom Dashboard commands.
  • Select a column to serve as a Key Value. The key column is a partition key, a value to group the rows by, or in this case, the visualization of the rows. This column should have a limited number of values.
  • Click the + icon to add the suggestion to the Script.
  • Click the Dashboard icon (/images/sl/sl_view_custom_dashboard.png) in the script.
  • The Scatter Matrix dashboard opens.

Once the dashboard opens, you can modify it with - panel preferences or by - modifying the layout*.
