Using tiled markers

A special use of marker shapes in a scatter plot is the tiled markers. Tiled markers are shaped as rectangles, displayed without gaps in a grid, and any added labels are always centered.

For example, if you change the markers in the top scatter plot to tiled markers, you get the scatter plot beneath it.
