Scatterplot (deprecated)

DeprecatedKNIME Base Nodes version 4.3.2.v202103021015 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

This node is obsolete! Please use the new Scatter Plotter located in the Data Views category.

Creates a scatterplot of two selectable attributes.

It is possible to open the view multiple times and to select two arbitrary columns. Nominal values are jittered if more than one dot is rendered on the same value.

By default the mouse pointer is in selection mode. This means by dragging or clicking (holding Ctrl for multiple selection) the dots can be marked. The selected dots can be hilited or unhilited via the pop-up or drop-down menu.

Clicking the zoom button (the button stays down) activates the zoom mode (the mouse pointer changes). In zoom mode - similar to selection mode - it is possible to drag a rectangle. After releasing the mouse button, the selected part of the plot is enlarged to fit into the visible area. The rest of the plot is accessible via the scroll bars. Once the zoom has been performed, mouse mode reverts to selection mode.

For large data tables the number of displayed rows can be set in the node's dialog. By default, only the first one thousand data rows are displayed.

The "More settings..." dialog enables you to make changes to the coordinate axis range and dot size.
