A set of four plots based on Edward R. Tufte's designs in The Visual Display of Quantitative Information:
All of these plots aim to maximize data-ink, the "non-erasable core of a graphic."
The "boxplot" (
bplot), for example, removes
boxes and caps and simply shows a dot between two lines.
The dot represents the median and the lines correspond
to the top and bottom 25% of the data. The empty space
between the lines is the interquartile range.
The line and scatter plots make use of Tufte's range-frame concept, which aims to make the frame (axis) lines "effective data-communicating element[s]" by showing the minimum and maximum values in each axis. The default line style uses a circle marker with gaps between line segments.
