Each point represents a dart thrown at the dartboard. The locations of the darts are sampled from either a uniform or normal distribution. In a uniform distribution, all points are equally likely. The uniform distribution is described by the range of possible values in the horizontal and vertical directions. In a normal distribution, center points are more likely than the edge points. The normal distribution is described by its mean (center) and standard deviation (spread).
