# Data Visualisation - Scatterplot

A Scatterplot displays x-y values as discrete points, scattered within an x-y grid.

It plots data points based on two independent variables.

Scatter graphs are useful for observing pattern in large data sets:

## Matrix (SPLOM)

A scatter plot matrix is a very nice way of plotting every variable against every other variable.

They are used to investigate the relationship between the variables.
