Essential Graphing

Essential Graphing describes all of the different graphs and elements you can use to visualize your data:

• Graph Builder interactively creates many different types of graphs. See Graph Builder and Graph Builder Examples.

• Bubble Plot creates a scatterplot that represents its points as circles, or bubbles. Bubble plots can be dynamic (animated over time) or static (fixed bubbles that do not move). See Bubble Plots.

• Scatterplot Matrix shows an ordered collection of bivariate graphs. See Scatterplot Matrix.

• Parallel Plot draws connected line segments that represent each row in a data table. See Parallel Plots.

• Cell Plot draws a rectangular array of cells where each cell corresponds to a data table entry. See Cell Plots.

• 3D Scatterplot shows the values of numeric columns in the associated data table in a rotatable, three-dimensional view. See Scatterplot 3D.

• Contour Plot constructs contours of a response in a rectangular coordinate system. See Contour Plots.

• Ternary Plot display the distribution and variability of three-part compositional data. See Ternary Plots.

• Maps can be used in Graph Builder, but also in other platforms, as background maps. See Maps.

• Treemaps, charts, and overlay plots are deprecated platforms and can be created using Graph Builder. See Legacy Platforms.
