A 3D scatter plot allows the visualization of multivariate data. This scatter plot takes multiple scalar variables and uses them for different axes in phase space. The different variables are combined to form coordinates in the phase space and they are displayed using glyphs and colored using another scalar variable.[1]

A scatter graph (also known as a scatterplot) is a type of graph used with 2 sets of data. It is a visual representation of correlation between the data sets.
