A proposed scatterplot design combines two other designs. One, proposed by Edward Tufte, uses the range-frame; the other, advised by William Cleveland, uses the four-scale-line rectangle. The hybrid design aims to present bivariate data with more information than classic scatterplots or Tufte's and Cleveland's designs. It works well for both single and multiple scatterplots, in the latter case offering efficient comparison of the datasets in the plots.
