Scatter Diagrams

A Scatter Chart (other names Scatter Plot, Scatter Diagram, Scatter Graph) is one of the Seven Basic tools of quality control. It displays the data set as a collection of points in Cartesian coordinates; each of them is determined by the values of two variables (position on the horizontal axis and vertical axis).

Scatter Diagrams are used for identifying potential linear and nonlinear relationships between variables. They are useful to visualize how a change in one variable affects another. Scatter Diagrams are also used to depict the relationships of price and quality rating, and to show the absence or presence of correlation between two variables and its degree. The correlation can be positive, negative, or null, its type can be easy defined with only a glance on the position of points on the Scatter Chart.

The Scatter Diagrams solution extends ConceptDraw PRO functionality with templates, samples, and a library of vector stencils that make construction of a Scatter Plot easy. The Scatter Chart Solution makes it easy to design attractive Scatter Diagrams used in various fields of science, work, and life activities. ConceptDraw PRO lets you enter the data to the table and construct the Scatter Plot Graph automatically according to these data.


There is 1 library containing 7 vector objects in the Scatter Diagrams solution.

Examples

There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw PRO application by using the Scatter Diagrams solution. Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.

All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The Scatter Diagrams solution is available to all ConceptDraw PRO users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software.

Template: Scatter Graph

This template will help you save your time while drawing a Scatter Chart. You can add or remove points using the commands from the object’s Action menu and assign their values using the table object. The change of color under the point's name in the table on any bright color conducts to highlighting of this point with it on chart.

Example 1: Scatter Diagram — Baby Height

This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Scatter Diagrams library from the Scatter Diagrams solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

A scatter diagram displays data as a collection of points. Each point has the value of one variable determining the position on the horizontal axis and the value of the other variable determining the position on the vertical axis. This informative sample notes the dependence of baby’s height as it relates to their age.

Example 2: Scatter Plot — Linear Regression

This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Scatter Diagrams library from the Scatter Diagrams solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This Scatter Diagram illustrates the linear regression - the method widely used in statistics, which models the relationships between the dependent variable y and one or several independent variables x with a linear dependence function.

Scatter Plot Example

Example 3: Scatter Plot with Missing Categories

This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Scatter Diagrams library from the Scatter Diagrams solution. An experienced user spent 7 minutes creating this sample.

This diagram compares two scatter plots by placing them side by side – regular and with missing categories. For increased visibility, you can use the properties of colors and additionally highlight the differences using more vivid color.

Scatter Plot Example

Example 4: Scatter Diagram — Strong Positive Linear Correlation

This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Scatter Diagrams library from the Scatter Diagrams solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This Scatter diagram illustrates the strong positive linear correlation. The straight line freely passes through the data and depicts the linear dependence, its slope is positive and shows the existence of positive correlation.

Example 5: Scatter Diagram — Widgets Price

This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Scatter Diagrams library from the Scatter Diagrams solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

The correlation is an interdependence of two or more random variables. This Scatter Diagram sample demonstrates the correlation between price per 100 widgets and quantity of widgets that were purchased.
