Users can now make "tables" in Google Drive by going to Create -> More -> Table (beta). I uploaded my own data (tsv) and then made a scatter plot by going to Visualize -> Scatter.

How do I

  1. add a title to my visualization?
  2. add axes titles?

This may have become possible, or at least much easier, since the Q was asked. Presently (New Google sheets) a default scatter plot may look like this:

Click on the down arrow at top right and select Advanced. Enter title of your choice where indicated:

WA26899 second example

and scroll down to enter the Horizontal axis title of choice (though there are several other ways to achieve the same result). Strangely, there was no default Vertical axis title, so right-click somewhere in the chart and in the pop-up select Axis, then Left vertical axis title:
