Figure 6.2 Example of a Scatterplot Matrix 

In this example, you can see that the graph for weight versus height is different from the graph for sex versus age. If you turn off jitter by clicking on the red triangle menu and selecting Points Jittered, the difference becomes even more pronounced.

Figure 6.3 Example of a Scatterplot Matrix with No Jitter 

The weight versus height graph shows continuous data, and the sex versus age graph shows categorical data.
