A scatter plot uses cartesian coordinates to display values for two variables for a set of data.

In TypeScript the type option must always be set.

Configuration options for the series are given in three levels:

  1. Options for all series in a chart are defined in the plotOptions.series object.
  2. Options for all scatter series are defined in plotOptions.scatter.
  3. Options for one single series are given in the series instance array.
Highcharts.chart('container', {
    plotOptions: {
        series: {
            // general options for all series
        scatter: {
            // shared options for all scatter series
    series: [{
        // specific options for this series instance
        type: 'scatter'
