Signal Plots are More Performant than Scatter Plots

  • Scatter plots have paired X/Y data points. Scatter plots are designed to display hundreds of points, but performance rapidly drops as the number of points increases, so scatter plots are not appropriate for large datasets.

  • Signal plots have Y data and a sample rate. Signal plots are optimized for performance and can render datasets with millions of points at a high framerate.

  • SignalConst plots uses an algorithm optimized for constant data values, allowing interactive rendering of hundreds of millions of data points at a high framerate.
