Properties for Data Science Charts

Version 5

 

Intro

Find out about chart properties available for Data Science charts, such as those for configuring quadrant lines, regression lines, box plot settings, and so on.

"General" properties

The properties in the following table are found in the General category in Chart Properties.

Option

Description

Examples

Symbol Type (scatter plot and bubble charts) Determines the symbol used for data points in bubble and scatter plot charts. Available symbols include circles (default), squares, diamonds, hexagons, and pentagons. The example shows a scatter plot chart in which U.S. states are represented using hexagons.  scatter_plot_state_hex.png
Symbol Size Determines the size of the symbols used for data points in scatter plot charts. The default size is small. 

Line Color

Determines the color of lines in a box plot chart. If the Disable Fill property is unchecked, the fill color of the boxes matches the line color; otherwise only the lines are colored. The default color is blue.

Percent Width

Determines the width of box plot diagrams in the chart. You can enter any value between 10 and 100. The lower the value, the thinner the boxes. In the example, the Percent Width has been set to 15.

Hide Whisker Caps

When enabled, hides the "whisker caps" in a box plot chart, the lines for high and low values that appear at the ends of the "whisker lines" by default. In the example, whisker caps have been hidden.

Disable Fill

Removes the colored fill in boxes in a box plot chart, causing them to appear transparent.

Bounds Fill Color Determines the color of the region between the lower and upper bounds of the first provided forecasting line in a forecasting chart. If either of these bounds is not set, no fill is applied. 
Fill Transparency Percent

Determines the percent of transparency of the fill between the lower and upper bounds of the first provided forecasting line in a forecasting chart. You can select any number between 0 and 100, in which 0 is completely opaque and 100 is completely transparent. If no color is selected in Bounds Fill Color, this property is unavailable.

In the example, the transparency has been set to 75.

Bounds Fill Color

Determines the color of the region between the lower and upper bounds of the first provided forecasting line in a forecasting chart. If either of these bounds is not set, no fill is applied.

Fill Transparency Percent

Determines the percent of transparency of the fill between the lower and upper bounds of the first provided forecasting line in a forecasting chart. You can select any number between 0 and 100, in which 0 is completely opaque and 100 is completely transparent. If no color is selected in Bounds Fill Color, this property is unavailable.

In the example, the transparency has been set to 75.

Forecast Line Color

Determines the color of the first provided forecast line in a forecasting chart.

 

Bounds 2 Fill Color

Determines the color of the region between the lower and upper bounds of the second provided forecasting line in a forecasting chart. If either of these bounds is not set, no fill is applied.

N/A

Fill 2 Transparency Percent

Determines the percent of transparency of the fill between the lower and upper bounds of the second provided forecasting line in a forecasting chart. You can select any number between 0 and 100, in which 0 is completely opaque and 100 is completely transparent. If no color is selected in Bounds 2 Fill Color, this property is unavailable.

N/A

Forecast 2 Line Color

Determines the color of the second provided forecast line in a forecasting chart.

N/A

Symbol Type (SPC charts) Lets you select the symbol used to denote points on the line (the default is a circle) in an SPC chart. In the example, the points appear as diamonds.  spc_symbol_type.png
Line Thickness Lets you determine whether the line in your SPC chart is thin (default), medium, or thick. In the example, the thickness has been set to thick. spc_line_thickness.png

"Grid Lines" properties

The properties in the following table are found in the Grid Lines category in Chart Properties.

Option

Description

Examples

Hide All Grids

Turns off grid lines in bubble charts. This is useful when you want to create a "quadrant chart" (that is, a chart divided into four sections using two coordinate lines). For more properties related to quadrant charts, see Quadrant Lines.

 

Y Zero Line Color

Determines the color of the horizontal "zero line" in bubble and scatter plot charts. This attribute does not work if the zero line is also the baseline in the chart (that is, the chart must contain negative values). In the example, this property has been set to red.

Y Zero Line Width

Determines the width of the horizontal "zero line" in bubble and scatter plot charts. This attribute does not work if the zero line is also the baseline in the chart (that is, the chart must contain negative values). In the example, this property has been set to 5.

X Zero Line Color

Determines the color for the vertical "zero line" in bubble and scatter plot charts. This attribute does not work if the vertical zero line is the leftmost line in the chart (that is, the chart must contain negative values). In the example, this property has been set to red.

X Zero Line Width

Determines the width of the vertical "zero line" in bubble and scatter plot charts. This attribute does not work if the zero line is the leftmost line in the chart (that is, the chart must contain negative values). In the example, this property has been set to 5.

"Quadrant Lines" properties

The properties in the following table are found in the Quadrant Lines category in Chart Properties.

Option

Description

Examples

X Scale Value

Allows you to set the value for the vertical quadrant line in a bubble chart. If you do not specify a value for this property, no vertical quadrant line appears. The example shows a bubble chart in which both the X and Y scale quadrant lines have been set to the midpoint value of 50. This dissects the chart into four quadrants of equal area. (Grid lines have also been turned off using the Grid Lines > Hide All Grids property. For more information about this property, see Hide All Grids.)

Y Scale Value

Allows you to set the value for the horizontal quadrant line in a bubble chart. If you do not specify a value for this property, no horizontal quadrant line appears. For an example chart that uses quadrant lines, see the previous entry.

"Regression Lines" properties

The properties in the following table are found in the Regression Lines category in Chart Properties.

Option

Description

Examples

Show Linear Regression Lines

Allows you to add a regression line for each series in a scatter plot or bubble chart.

"Control Chart Rules" properties

The properties in the following table are found in the "Control Chart Rules" category in Chart Properties. 

Option Description Examples

Beyond Limits

Turns on the "Beyond Limits" rule for SPC charts, which flags points if they are outside of the automatically determined upper or lower limits of the chart, which are 3 standard deviations away from the mean.

spc_rule1.png

2 of 3 Outside 2 Standard Deviations

Turns on the "2 of 3 Outside 2 Standard Deviations" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether 2 out of 3 consecutive points are outside of 2 standard deviations away from the mean.

spc_rule2.png

4 of 5 Outside 1 Standard Deviation

Turns on the "4 of 5 Outside 1 Standard Deviation" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether 4 out of 5 consecutive points are outside of 1 standard deviation away from the mean.

spc_rule3.png

Run Over/Under Mean

Turns on the "Run Over/Under Mean" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether a specified number of consecutive points fall over or under the mean. You specify the number of points that must be consecutive using the Color Chart Rules > Run Length option.

spc_rule4.png

Run Length

Determines the number of points over or under the mean that must be consecutive for the "Run Over/Under Mean" SPC chart rule to apply. 

Trend

Turns on the "Trend" rule for SPC charts, which looks whether a specified number of points are trending up or down. You specify the number of points that must be consecutive using the Color Chart Rules > Trend Length option. 

spc_rule5.png

Trend Length

Determines the number of points that must trend up or down for the "Trend" SPC rule to apply.

8 Outside 1 Std Deviation

Turns on the "8 Outside 1 Std Deviation" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether 8 consecutive points are outside of 1 standard deviation away from the mean.

spc_rule6.png

15 Within 1 Std Deviation

Turns on the "15 Within 1 Std Deviation" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether 15 consecutive points fall within 1 standard deviation away from the mean.
