A Parametric layout enables you to create scatter plots by displaying any numerical property value encoded in your data on X-, Y-, or Z- axes.

You can:

  • Select a numerical property to be displayed on the X-, Y-, and Z- axes.

  • Set an Advanced Range (minimum and maximum) of values to be displayed.

  • Adjust the scale of the axes using the Axis slider.

  • Choose to show or hide the Axes and/or the Grid.

  • Apply the layout, or Reset the graph to the layout you started with.

Your choice of variables is saved in the lower part of the panel, and you can:

  • Click Apply to re-apply any of the saved parametric layouts.

  • Click Delete to delete a saved parametric layout.

To create a parametric layout:

  1. Click to open the Layout panel and choose the Parametric tab.

  2. Choose a property name for the X-, Y-, and Z-axes.
    NOTE: You can flatten the layout to a 2D projection by choosing none as the Z-axis.

  3. Optionally, click the Advanced Range checkbox to expand the property selectors to show fields to enter maximum and/or minimum values to be displayed.

  4. Use the Axis slider to adjust the size of the scatterplot space.

  5. Click the Show Axes checkbox to show labeled X-, Y-, and Z- axes. Click the Show Grid checkbox to add gridlines.

  6. Click Apply to show the parametric layout.

Once you are done designing your scatter plots, you can save a Snapshot or data View, and then Reset the data to the layout you started with. For example, if you started with geospatial data pinned to a map, but crafted another view of it in a parametric layout, clicking Reset returns you to the map layout.
