The XY Plot

Why use an XY Plot?

XY Plots are one of the most versatile diagrams available to presentation creators. In addition to plotting points along two axes, they're also a great tool for visually comparing items across multiple dimensions. Presenters can use XY plots for competitive analyses, product and feature comparisons, and even market sizing. Variations on the XY Plot include quadrant diagrams—which make it easy divide items into groups—and free floating circles, which can be used to compare items based on size alone.
