I would also like to hear a solution to #1. Fill above and below a reference line will color 2 of the 4 quadrants, but I don't see any way to color them individually. Calculated fields seem to color marks, but not the background quadrant color.
A partial workaround for #1 that works reasonably well is to add an area annotation (right mouse click on the quadrant, annotate->area). Then format the annotation to be partially transparent around 40% or so, have the color that you want, fit the quadrant, have square corners and no lines for borders.
The only problem is that the transparency dulls some of the data displayed in the quadrant. This would be a perfect solution if Tableau had a way to make the area annotation "move to back". Then you wouldn't need to make it partially transparent, and it wouldn't dull or hide the marks.
If you really, really want to achieve the coloured quadrant effect you could probably achieve it by manipulating your data source to include extra columns and extra rows which define the vertices of four squares, allowing you to use a combo chart with the polygon mark type to draw the quadrants with the scatter plot overlaid on top.
This thread about drawing filled circles uses the same idea, and should just give some clues if you're keen to pursue it.
It sounds really messy - especially if you want to allow for the maximum and minimum values changing and not have to fix axis scales and things...
Following both threads here.
Could I start at the basics asking how to create quadrant scatter graph.
How about something like this:
Peter Sidi, if you can provide an example data set that represents your situation, and detail what you would like for a result and interaction, and example can be made for you.
That is really a awesome job. I was trying to understand the process and data, how to do the same but didn’t get it.
Could you please help me out to understand the data and Process part (How to go about it)? I have something same to do in some of my project, it will really help me.
Hi, This viz is no longer availalbe, can you re-post it? (
I have the same question about how to color the four quanrants dynamically. The 2 buy 2 plot is paged by time(month), the average changes by the month selected. And potentially by the product category selected to. The average is not fixed, that's why I want the color to be dynamic.
