comment How can I distinguish positive from negative values in a grayscale bubble grid?
@EddieA. I used Excel. They kind of really aren't pictures to begin with. That's what I meant.

@DA01 I can make vector files of arbitrary resolution, as this is going into a Latex PDF, but I dunno what kind of resolution printers can pull off

If the typeface is sufficiently large I believe you can get away with anything so long as you have a black border on it.

That's an awesome amount of effort, but I wonder if you have noticed that some of the dots are only a few pixels across

Unfortunately while the university requires you to bring several copies of this 10k+ words document, each copy is unlikely to be opened more than once or twice in its lifetime, so there's little reason to pay for nice-to-haves... other than the binding. :)

@EddieA. I don't know exactly what kind of machinery the typing office will use (we're probably going to pick one at the last minute <__<), but I assume that they will want to be paid a nice premium for color even if they did use a printer that could do color natively. I'm running under the assumption that I only have grayscale available to me.

If you're looking for inspiration, just look at transit maps :)

Also: those pictures get converted to vector formats, so fancier solutions such as gradients or patterns are right out.

Bonus question: the chart is symmetric. Should I still show both halves? ...maybe I could have one half only show positive correlation and the other half show negative correlation, but it would be very hard to get a good perfect result with Excel.
