Show your correlations beautifully

Scatter plots can be hard to decipher. Our design defaults make it as easy as possible.

Label or explain data points with annotations

In Datawrapper, you can add annotations with one click – and then format them, make them disappear on mobile, draw lines, add a text outline, …

Label data points automatically without overlapping

Often, dozens of data points cluster in one area of your scatter plot. The result: The labels for your data points overlap.

In Datawrapper, they don’t. Our automatic labeling only shows labels when there’s enough space for them. (And yes, you can also choose which data points you want to label.)

Looks great on desktop devices. And tablets. And smartphones.

All our charts, maps & tables you create with Datawrapper are responsive – but our scatter plots show especially well how we make this happen.

On mobile devices,

  • annotations move below the chart
  • fewer data point labels appear
  • fewer x-axis labels appear
  • font sizes stay readable

And the best part: You don’t need to worry about any of this. It all happens by default.
