Create a bubble chart in everviz

Follow the steps in this article to create a bubble chart in everviz.

Bubble charts are similar to scatter charts in that there two variables are plotted on the chart’s x and y axes as coordinates. However, bubble charts can plot a variable on the z axis in the form of a circle, more colloquially known as a circle. The size of the bubble provides a visual cue as to the size of the variable on the z axis, with a larger bubble indicating a higher value relative to the other variables on the z axis, and a smaller bubble showing the opposite.

The example we’ll create lets us see not only the sales performance of an employee for each month in H1, but also the level of social media engagement the employee enjoyed during each month. This lets us see if the level of social media engagement has an effect on the sales performance of the employee.

  • Launch the project wizard and select Chart to launch the chart wizard
