Adding a menu to filter out some subsets of your data might be a good idea if you have a very large amount of points.

- In the data tab, add a column from your dataset to the "Filter control" space in the "Select columns to visualise" panel
- Switch to the Preview tab to view your Scatter plot including a menu to filter by
- You might want to add your scatter plot to a story and change the filter in the different slides to animate between the different states.
