Bubble Charts

Bubble charts are data visualizations best used for showing three dimensions of data – comparing entities in terms of their relative values, positions, and size. Bubble charts are similar to scatter plots, but they use bubbles instead of data points.

Bubble charts are one of many types of data visualizations used to organize and present data in a way the audience can understand and take action on. To ensure visualizations have real business value, it’s important to know which types of visualizations are best suited for a given data set.
