Pipette Analysis Reference - Chart Types

Last Updated: Oct 13, 2014 09:35AM PDT

Summary: Several options are available for creating charts in Pipette. The available chart types depend on the data placed in different dimensions.

Click a chart type to learn more about it:

Scatter Plot

A scatter plot displays a collection of points for each data records x, y properties. The radius of each data point can be controlled by a numeric z axis property. The color of each data point can be controlled by a numeric or categorical z2 axis property. Scatter plots are typically used for showing and comparing numeric values, such as scientific and statistical data.

Trellised scatter plot:

Note: Clicking the x or y axis changes to a log scale, if all the data is positive.

3D Scatter Plot

When a sense of depth is useful for showing chart data, a scatter plot can be displayed in 3-D format as illustrated in the examples below.

Note: This type of plot requires a WebGL-enabled browser, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

3D Scatter Plot Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 1 Numeric

z axis – 1 Numeric

z2 axis – 0-1 Numeric or Categorical

Surface Chart

A Surface chart is useful when large data sets make scatter plots difficult to interpret, due to points partially overlapping. They are also useful when comparing numeric values with a set of discrete values, creating the effect of perfectly overlapping points in a scatter plot.

Surface Chart Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 1 Numeric

y axis – 1 Numeric

ppt_surface_chart_example.png

Surface Chart with Outliers

Surface chart data can also include points of data that are outside the range (outliers) as illustrated in the example below. This is useful for spotting clusters of data in large data sets, while retaining the ability to preview the details of individual outliers.

Surface Chart with Outliers Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 1 Numeric

y axis – 1 Numeric

ppt_surface_outliers_chart_example.png

Note: Outliers on the surface are shown as individual points that can be previewed.

Area Chart

Area charts plot change over time and illustrate the total value across a trend. This type of chart also shows the relationship of parts to a whole by displaying the sum of the plotted values.

Area Chart Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 1 Numeric

y axis – 0-1 Numeric

z2 axis – 0-1 Categorical

Notes:

  • Clicking x axis changes bin size.
  • Clicking y axis changes between mean and sum, if a y axis property is defined.

Table Chart

A table chart is useful for displaying text and molecular output in a tabular format.

Table Chart Examples

Data Types Chart Examples
x axis – 1-8 Any

Card Chart

A card chart is useful for displaying molecular structures in a tabular format. The displayed cards update to reflect selections in other charts.

ppt_card_chart_icon.png

Card Chart Examples

Data Types Chart Examples
x axis – 1-8 Any

ppt_card_chart_example.png

Note: Output includes any image, compound or reaction on each data record.

Box Plot

A box plot is useful for graphically depicting groups of numerical data through their quartiles. The quartiles are the points that divide the data set. Box plots can have lines extending vertically from the boxes (whiskers) indicating variability outside the upper- and lower-quartiles. Outliers can be plotted as individual points.

Data Types Chart Example

y axis – 1 - 8 numeric

z2 axis –  1 categorical

Tukey boxplot showing the mean, first and third quartiles. Whiskers correspond to highest and lowest data within 1.5x the interquartile range (IQR). Data outside of this range is shown as points:

Correlation Matrix

A correlation matrix is a chart displayed in a grid format to provide correlations between all pairs of data sets. It is useful for comparing and analyzing sets of data.

Correlation Matrix Examples

Data Types Chart Examples
x axis – 2-8 Numeric ppt_correlation_matrix_example.png

Heat Map

A heat map is a graphical representation of data where individual values contained in a matrix are represented as colors.

ppt_heatmap_icon.png

Heat Map Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 1 Integer, Categorical or String

y axis – 1 Integer, Categorical or String

z axis – 0-1 Any (trellis)

z2 axis – 0-1 Numeric (cell value)

ppt_heat_map_example.png

Notes:

  • x and y values for the heat map are ordered based on the input data.
  • If no value for z2 is specified, the heat map is shaded based on if an x-y combination is present.
  • Each cell in the heat map must only have a single value.

Histogram

A histogram is a column chart that shows frequency data across a set of numeric data.

Histogram Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 1 Numeric or Categorical

z2 axis – 0-1 Categorical

ppt_histogram_example.png

With a category on y axis:

ppt_histogram_category_example.png

Note: Clicking x axis changes bin size for numeric histograms.

Stacked Histogram

Histogram charts can also be combined and displayed in a stacked format as illustrated in the examples below.

Stacked Histogram Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

ppt_histogram_stacked_example1.png

With categorical property on y axis:

ppt_histogram_stacked_example2.png

Note: Clicking x axis changes bin size for numeric histograms.

Line Chart

Line charts can show continuous data over time on an evenly-scaled axis and are useful for showing trends in data at equal intervals, such as months and years.

Line Chart Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 1 – 8 numeric, date

y axis – 0-1 numeric

z2 axis – 0-1 categorical

ppt_line_chart_example1.png

ppt_line_chart_example2.png

Notes:

  • A categorical z2 value can only be specified when there is a single x value.
  • Clicking x axis changes bin size.
  • Clicking y axis changes between mean and sum, if a y axis property is defined.

Plate Map

A plate map is used to show the values of assay data or other measurements on laboratory plates. Visualization on the plates can be useful for spotting row or column trends that can be due to equipment errors.

ppt_plate_map_icon.png

Plate Map Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 1 Integer, Categorical or String

y axis – 1 Integer, Categorical or String

z axis – 0-1 numeric (trellis) Integer, Categorical or String

z2 axis – 0-1 numeric (well value)

ppt_platemap_example1.png

ppt_platemap_example2.png

Note: Each well in the plate map must only have a single value.

Radar Chart

Radar charts compare the aggregate values of several data series, and show changes in values relative to a center point.

ppt_radar_chart_icon.png

Radar Chart Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 3-8 numeric

z2 axis – 0-1 categorical

ppt_radar_example1.png

Radar Grouped Chart

Radar charts can also be grouped into categories, where the area covered by the data series is filled with a solid color, and the mean value is displayed in the output.

ppt_radar_grouped_chart_icon.png

Radar Grouped Chart Examples

Data Types Chart Examples

x axis – 3-8 numeric

z2 axis – 1 categorical

ppt_radar_grouped_example.png

Note: Data is grouped by category and the min, max, and mean for each x property is shown.

Word Cloud

A word cloud chart maps data as an arrangement of randomly positioned words as a shape, such as a cloud. It is similar to a phrase cloud, but the text is broken down into individual words.

Word cloud charts are useful for summarizing information in a visual and engaging way. Greater prominence is given to words that appear more frequently in the source text used to generate the word cloud output. The frequency (i.e., importance) of each word or phrase within the text is usually shown by its size. The more frequently a word or phrase occurs in the text, the larger it will be displayed within the word cloud.

Word Cloud Chart Examples

Data Types Chart Examples
x axis – 1 categorical or text ppt_word_cloud_example.png

Phrase Cloud

A phrase cloud is similar to a word cloud, but the text is not broken into separate words.
