### Plot (graphics)

plotdata plotplots
They include plots such as scatter plots, histograms, probability plots, spaghetti plots, residual plots, box plots, block plots and biplots.
A plot is a graphical technique for representing a data set, usually as a graph showing the relationship between two or more variables.

### Probability plot

They include plots such as scatter plots, histograms, probability plots, spaghetti plots, residual plots, box plots, block plots and biplots.
In statistics, a probability plot is a graphical technique for comparing two data sets, either two sets of empirical observations, one empirical set against a theoretical set, or (more rarely) two theoretical sets against each other.

### William Playfair

PlayfairPlayfair, WilliamPlayfair cycle
The founder of graphical methods of statistics, Playfair invented several types of diagrams: in 1786 the line, area and bar chart of economic data, and in 1801 the pie chart and circle graph, used to show part-whole relations.

### Exploratory data analysis

Exploratory data analysis (EDA) relies heavily on such techniques.
Typical graphical techniques used in EDA are:

### Pie chart

A pie chart (or a circle chart) is a circular statistical graphic, which is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion.

### Data visualization

Statistical graphics, also known as graphical techniques, are graphics in the field of statistics used to visualize quantitative data. Whereas statistics and data analysis procedures generally yield their output in numeric or tabular form, graphical techniques allow such results to be displayed in some sort of pictorial form.
