Create a packed bubble chart in everviz

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

Packed bubble charts are great for seeing hierarchical data as multiple series of circles, with the size of the circle dictating the magnitude of the data value it represents. A larger circle means a higher value and vice versa.

The example we’ll create lets us see the top 20 best-performing sales branches of a company, with the set of branches split into four different tiers from the top 5 best-performing branches to the top 16-20 branches. 

To create a packed bubble chart:

  • Launch the project wizard and select Chart to launch the chart wizard
  • Select Packed bubble from the Chart type section to the left of the chart wizard’s screen. Notice that the preview pane changes to reflect the chart type you’ve chosen
  • You can choose other styles of packed bubble chart if you don’t want to use the default one. Simply click the drop-down control labelled Style and choose a different packed bubble style.
  • Click Next to move to the Data step where you can enter the data for your chart
  • Click the top-left cell (A1) in the data table and press CTRL+A to select all the data in it
  • Press the delete key to remove the example data
  • Copy this example data and paste it into the data table at the top-left cell (A1). You’ll see the newly added data reflected in the preview chart
  • Click Next to move to the Design screen where you can choose a theme for your chart. Click an available theme to see how it looks, or stick with the default theme
  • Click Next to move to the Text & Annotations screen where you can add contextual information to your chart, such as a title, axis labels and a caption
  • Click Next to move to the Save or Publish screen where you can save your chart for later amendment or use, or publish your chart
  • Alternatively, you can click the Continue in Editor button to edit the chart further with more granular options
