Bubble charts

The bubble chart is a variation of the scatter chart, and its data points appear as bubbles. Your search must have at least one attribute and two measures to generate a bubble chart.

The bubble chart displays three to five dimensions or measures of data. In addition to the traditional X and Y axis, the size of the bubble represents a measurement. Bubble charts can show two more attributes, when you slice and/or slice by color.

If you hover over a data point, you can see what store type and store region it represents. Here, we have a large store in the west region:
