How to make a scatterplot with a smooth fitted line

This tutorial by Nathan Yau from FlowingData outlines an easy method for fitting a line to data points of a scatterplot by using open source software. 


"Maybe you have observations over time or it might be two variables that are possibly related. In either case, a scatter plot just might not be enough to see something useful. A fitted line can let you see a trend or relationship more easily."
