Charts can be customized from the fullscreen view. Here users can make minor changes to improve formatting and clarity, and also make extensive customizations (e.g. combining multiple attributes) to create a wholly different chart that looks to answer different questions.
For this tutorial we will be looking at a collection and the project attribute, Social Deprivation index (SDI), which is a composite measure of area level deprivation based on seven demographic characteristics collected in the American Community Survey and used to quantify the socio-economic variation in health outcomes.
By default all project attribute scatterplots will be plotted with projects as the X axis and sorted from smallest to biggest. This gives you a good look at the overall data but often it's useful to customize the chart further.
One customization is changing the X-axis. For this project we can change it to Site-Location, which is a "text" type of attribute so we'll see a number of columns for each unique value of site location.
This gives us a look at the SDI data by location to see if there are any differences. This is still a little hard to read so let's go ahead and add a median line for each column. This shows us that the SDI is pretty consistent between all sites.
Finally, let's add some color to make the chart a little clearer and nicer to look at. First let's try coloring by SDI. SDI is number-type attribute (i.e. the values are numbers) so the color legend will be a continuous scale.
This doesn't really add much so instead let's change the color to the site location to just add some clarity to the overall chart. Since the site-location is a text-type attribute (i.e. the values are text, e.g. 'NIH') the legend will be swatches with a swatch for each location. Also just to clean things up further, we can go ahead and change the median to 'Per Color & Column', which will in this case color the median to the same color as the column.
