| Greetings,
| I'm trying to figure out how to develop -- for 
lack of a better term --
| an animated scatter plot. I have three 
variables, call them x, y, and z.
| The points x and y are recorded measurements on 
the same subjects, taken
| at different points in time. The variable z does 
not change over time.
| I'd like to find a way to visualize how the 
ListPlot[{x,z}] transitions
| into the ListPlot[{y,z}]. My sample of data is 
250 points, so I am
| trying to visualize 250 points moving from one 
set of positions on the
| Cartesian plane to another set of positions. The 
y observations are more
| highly correlated with z, so one could image the 
points becoming more
| tightly clustered as one moves from x->y. Any 
thoughts on how I might
| show this?
| Thanks,
| -Mark
