What is a scatter plot

A scatter plot (or scatter diagram) is a two-dimensional graphical representation of a set of data. Each x/y variable is represented on the graph as a dot or a cross.

This type of chart can be used in to visually describe relationships (correlation) between two numerical parameters or to represent distributions.

Excel is often used to generate scatter plots on a personal computer. See this article for a full explanation on producing a plot from a spreadsheet table.
