When creating a classed or binned ScatterPlot, Voxler 4 offers 2 different binning methods; Equal Interval and Equal Bins. The difference between the 2 methods is detailed below:

  • Equal Intervals assigns the class ranges so the interval between the >= Minimum value and the <Maximum value is equal for each class. Normally in this case, a different number of points is assigned to each bin.
  • Equal Bins assigns the class ranges such that approximately equal numbers of points are included in each class. Usually in this case, the interval for each class is different.
