scatter diagram

or

scattergram

a diagram produced on a graph to illustrate the relationship between two variables by indicating the values of these for each case in the sample. It may be a first stage in data analysis, allowing ‘eye-balling’ of the data to observe any association or CORRELATION between the variables.
