scatterplot matrix

Hello, I think it would be a great idea to create a MOD for scatterplot matrix. This type of visualization shows the distribution of data per attribute as well as a scatterplot for every pair of attributes.

Today, it is possible to create it using TERR or Python but I still think this is a potential for a MOD.

In other words, you can quickly see how your data distributes as well as any trend of 2 attributes.

Why is important: because this is one of the most basics forms of exploratory data analysis, everyone wants to have a quick glimpse into the data to discover trends and spot collinearity issues before deep diving into the creation of advanced analytic models.

Who would benefit: Everyone exploring data, in any industry.

How it should work: One should have the option to drag and drop a MOD and simply select the attributes and the scatter plot matrix creates itself with the variables placed randomly. They should not be in a specific order, but it would be nice if the person could assign the order or change it in the matrix ay their convenience.

I'm leaving some articles for reference:

    Agree. Many customers would use this. We are working to see if we can develop a mod for it.
