Scatter

In this layout the positions of the nodes are given by two or three node properties. It is possible to normalize the properties to values between 0 and 1. Can be used to look for correlations between the network topology and numerical properties of the nodes.

This layout is also a way to draw and navigate in big scatter plots, without network structure. Simply create a network with zero links, load its node properties and use this plugin.

Parameter Type Default Description
Property X* text None Property to use in the X axis.
Normalize X* Bool False Whether to normalize the X property between 0 and 1.
Property Y* text None Property to use in the Y axis.
Normalize Y* Bool False Whether to normalize the Y property between 0 and 1.
Property Z text None Property to use in the Z axis. Leave this field empty to make a 2D plot of the data.
Normalize Z Bool False Whether to normalize the Z property between 0 and 1.

* Required Field

The following two plots show a visualization of the vertices of an OBJ file (which include the vertex positions). All nodes have transparency, and the darker regions indicate an accumulation of nodes. In total, the figure has more than 66000 nodes.
