Jittering example

Version 1

    Description:

    Overlapping points can be "jittered" out in a circular pattern from their original location. This example allows you to set:

      - Jitter on/off - plot at jittered locations or their original locations

      - Spread rotation - allows you to spin the jittered points to avoid overlaps

      - Spread factor - how far to spread the points (useful when zooming out)

      - Cluster sensitivity - allows you to define clusters of close data points (again - useful when zooming out)

     

    It's shown with a scatter chart but it would be easy to extend this to a mapping scenario.
