## Scatter plot of contingency data using earthquake data

Path Finder

My ultimate goal is to create a scatter plot showing the number of email messages which has a spam score of X and phish score of Y. I tried to do this using the earthquake data and plotting the number of earthquakes which had Magnitude X and Depth Y where each colored dot would represent a different count. For example, red = 1, blue = 2 and Green =3 and the plot would show the count of each combination of depth and magnitude similar to the table produced by

`source="eqs7day-M2.5.txt" | contingency Depth Magnitude`

If I read the chart reference page, the x axis is the first argument after chart, y axis is the over clause and the values would be the by clause. So, how do I get the following faulty chart command to work to produce what I want:

```````chart values(Magnitude) over Depth by count(Depth)`
``````

so the X axis is Magnitude, Y axis is Depth and the value is the number of earthquakes with that Magnitude and Depth?

As you can see, this solution will give me the real answer to my real problem, graphing spam vs phish scores.

Thanks so much,

I solved this tricky problem with the following solution:

``````source="eqs7mday-M2.5.txt"  | stats count(Depth) AS Depthcount by Magnitude,Depth | table Depthcount,Magnitude,Depth
``````

Hit the table button and select Scatter Plot and you end up with a Scatter Plot of Depth on the X axis and Magnitude on the Y axis with your count as values of the graph.
