Using image as marker in scatter plot


I’m wondering if it is possible to use a custom image as markers in a scatter plot. I found this feature request in this GitHub thread and I’m curious to see if there’s any update on it.


Hi @runze,

This isn’t directly possible. The best approximation is to position multiple background images ( But, I don’t think the performance of this approach will scale past a few dozen images.


Thanks for replying! Yes, I’ve seen that option too and I agree it doesn’t scale well. Hopefully, the feature will be added in the future :slight_smile:

So is there any development to making this in a more scalable manner? It would open up to a lot of possibilities when it comes to the visuals.
