Dot plots, also known as a dot chart, are a simple, yet versatile way to visualize variability in one attribute (using one axis), or showing relationships between two quantitative attributes (using two axes, i.e. a scatter plot). Tuva will default to generating a dot plot if no other graph type is selected.

**Creating a Dot Plot with a Single Categorical or Numerical Attribute**

**categorical**or**numerical**attribute to an axis in the graphing area

**Creating a Dot Plot with One Numerical and One Categorical Attribute**

Dataset: Dinosaurs

Steps

- At the top of the display area, click
**Dot** - Drag a
**categorical**attribute to one axis - Drag a
**numerical**attribute to the other axis

**Scatterplot (Two Numerical Attributes)**

Dataset: Dinosaurs

Steps

- At the top of the display area, click
**Dot** - Drag a
**numerical**attribute to one axis - Drag another
**numerical**attribute to the other axis
