Scatterplot Matrices

The Plotly folks show off scatterplot matrices in Python:

The scatterplot matrix, known acronymically as SPLOM, is a relatively uncommon graphical tool that uses multiple scatterplots to determine the correlation (if any) between a series of variables.

These scatterplots are then organized into a matrix, making it easy to look at all the potential correlations in one place.

SPLOMs, invented by John Hartigan in 1975, allow data aficionados to quickly realize any interesting correlations between parameters in the data set.

In this post, we’ll go over how to make SPLOMs in Plotly with Python. For extra insights, check out our SPLOM tutorial in Python and R.
