Making a Scatterplot

We dive into making a slightly more complex chart: a scatter plot. In this lesson, we talk about why you would create a scatter plot and its basic anatomy.


Now that we've created our first chart, let's create another chart that's a little more complex. At the end of this chapter, we'll have a deeper understanding of each step required to make a chart in d3.

There are endless questions we could ask our weather dataset — many of them ask about the relationship between different metrics. Let's investigate these two metrics:

  • dew point is the highest temperature (°F) at which dew droplets form

  • humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air

I would expect them to be correlated — high humidity should cause a higher dew point temperature, right? Let's dive in and find out!
