Constructs a scatter plot with the given parameters.
glis a WebGL context
optionsis a JSON object containing configuration data for the scatter plot. For more information, see the documentation in the
Returns A new scatter plot object
Updates the scatter plot object. The parameter
options is an object with the following properties:
position(Required) an array of length 3 arrays encoding the position of the points in the scatter plot.
colorA length 3 array encoding the color of the points in the scatter plot. To set colors per point, pass an array instead. Default is
glyphThe glyph of each point. This is a UTF8 string representing some shape. Per point glyphs can be specified by passing an array. The default glyph is a circle,
"●". For more glyph ideas, check out the unicode character set. Some other fun suggestions:
"☢", "☯", "❤", "▲", "⚑".
sizeThe size of each point, or specified per-point using an array. In orthographic, this is in screen coordinates, or in perspective this is in world coordinates. Default is
orthographicA flag, which if set to
truecauses the points to be drawn without perspective scaling.
pickIdAn 8 bit value which determines the tag for all elements within the pick buffer
lineWidththe width of the outline (set to 0 for no outline) Default is
lineColorthe color of the outline for each marker
fontthe font used for drawing the glyphs (default
anglean angle to rotate the glyphs by in radians (default

Draws the scatter plot with the given camera parameters.
camera is a JSON object storing the camera parameters for the point cloud. It has the following properties:
modelthe model matrix, encoded as a length 16 array
viewthe view matrix of the camera, encoded as a length 16 array
projectionthe projection matrix of the camera, encoded as a length 16 array
Destroys the scatter plot object and releases all stored resources.
Draws the scatter plot into a pick buffer for point selection purposes.
camerais a camera object, with the same properties as in
Finds the index of a point selected by some mouse coordinate.
selectedis the selection information returned by calling end on a
Returns An object representing the highlighted point, or
null if no point is selected. The object has the following properties:
indexwhich is the index of the selected point
positionwhich the 3D position of the selected point in data coordinates
Highlights the point with index
pointId in the scatter plot by changing its color to
pointIdis the index of a point in the scatter plot
highlightColoris the color to draw the highlighted point with
If this function is called with no arguments, then it will deselect the currently highlighted point.
Lower and upper bounds on the point cloud
A pair of arrays that determine lower and upper bounds on the scatter plot to draw. These are useful for clipping the scatter plot to a smaller region.
