I was so excited to try the 3D scatter plot in Plotly the first time because wow cool no? But I was also pleasantly surprised and the extra insights I was able to extract from this plot. Something about actually going inside your data and exploring the data in 3D yields amazing insights.
In the past, we would have been happy with a tri variate relationship but understanding the 3 correlation pairs and hoping that gave us a good enough answer.
I thought that this approach was good enough but it turns out there is a better data analysis tool. The 3D Scatter plot in Plotly is an amazing data analysis tool. The 3D scatter plot allows us to inspect 3 continuous features side by side by side. Better yet in this 3D environment, we can zoom in and it almost feels like we are able to jump inside of our data and explore this tri variate relationship in detail.
