I would like to plot/scatter a few points, but each of them should be in different color. I need this, because color should store extra information, let's say OX means age, OY means hight and color of point indicates a person. Is it possible to do? Thanks for any help

Edit: Solved. Thank you for your answers. I decided to create ListPlot and treat every point as seperate plot, because it's important for me to remember which point represents which "person".

  • $\begingroup$ So do you want each one in different color or do you want the color to reflect already existing values? \ $\endgroup$ – Kuba Apr 12 '17 at 19:23

All the same colour

ListPlot[MapIndexed[{#2[[1]], #1} &, Prime[Range[25]]]]

All different colours

ListPlot[MapIndexed[List@{#2[[1]], #1} &, Prime[Range[25]]]]

Suppose you have some list of points:

data = Table[{i, Random[]}, {i, 0, 10}];

Then

ListPlot[Flatten[{data}, {2}], PlotStyle -> PointSize[Large]]

gives you what you want:

You can use PlotStyle to define the color to be used.
