Scatter plots are an awesome tool for presenting a vast and confusing amount of data and turning it into an easy to digest, comprehensible visual aid for your audience or readers. More than any other graph, the scatterplot is best able to display correlation and show how one variable affects the other, allowing you to spot trends and even outliers or those outside the norm.

Make sense of a large amount of data and turn it into a beautiful graph
Use Canva to create a custom scatterplot and include it any presentation, brochure, infographic or any other document seamlessly. Start by adding in your labels and values and sit back as Canva builds your graph. Then, customize colors and fonts to perfection!
Change colors, fonts and resize or scale your graph
Make sure individual data sets are properly discernible from each other by color coding each. Why not use your brand’s colors or follow your document theme? It’s as simple as typing in a hex code or selecting the right hue from the color wheel. Make sure your font matches your document theme too by choosing from over a hundred different typefaces in Canva. Finally, you can easily resize or scale your scatterplot by dragging on the corners — easily ensuring that your new graph will fit your presentation slide or document page.
Add or edit data with a few clicks
Canva gives you the option to manually enter your data into a table or copying and pasting from an existing one. Just head over to the table tool on the Canva toolbar and start plotting your x and y axis. If there are any changes down the road, you can always go back and update the table. Plus, if you click on a specific point in your scatterplot, it will automatically highlight the corresponding values in your table so you can quickly identify what needs editing.
Nothing to install, everything is online
With Canva, there’s no need to download or install any software which means you can create or access your designs and charts anytime, anywhere! All you need is an internet connection and any computer or laptop. Need something even handier? You can always design on the go with Canva’s iPhone, iPad and Android app.
