  1. The basic idea of rug is that project the data points onto an axes and represent it as thin lines beside the axes.
  2. This rug representation is not a density plot, it just projects each point to the axes with a thin line. Thus, there is not bandwidth in the rug representation.
  3. If the X/Y direction has duplicate values, the rug lines will be overlapped.
  4. You can double-click on the rug panel to open the Rug tab of Axis dialog to check the detailed settings for this kind of graphs.
