# Scatter Plot

Learn to create and use scatter plots in the Cohort Browser.

An Apollo license is required to access the Cohort Browser. Contact DNAnexus Sales for more information.

A scatter plot can be built when combining

**two numerical**fields.Dimension 1 | Dimension 2 |

Numerical (Integer) or Numerical (float) | Numerical (Integer) or Numerical (float) |

Numerical fields used as first dimension and second dimension are used respectively to render x and y axis of the scatter plot.

Below is an example of a scatter plot combining

**Coffee Intake**and**Average Weekly Red Wine Intake**. Hovering over specific data points provides precise reading of the chart.Scatter Plot: Coffee Intake x Average Weekly Red Wine Intake

Similar to box plots and grouped box plots, non-numeric values for both numerical fields, if any, are counted and displayed separately as a list view.

Display of non-numeric values in Scatter Plot

Similar to stacked row charts, scatter plots allow swapping x / y axis by re-arranging priority order of the two numerical fields. Below is an example using the same fields as above, using a different axis ordering:

Scatter Plot: Average Weekly Red Wind Intake x Coffee Intake

Scatter plots can display a maximum of 30,000 data points. Keep this in mind when using a scatter plot to, for example, visualize data on a cohort that contains more than 30,000 subjects.

Scatter plots are not supported in Cohort Compare.
