# Bubble Chart

In this article, we will explain how to create and customize a bubble chart. So let's get started!

A bubble chart is a chart that visualizes data using a collection of points plotted on a grid. Each point represents a single data point, and the position of the point on the grid represents the values of the data point for two different variables. The size of the point, or bubble, represents a third variable, and the color of the bubble can represent a fourth variable. The x-axis represents one variable, the y-axis represents another variable, the size of the bubble represents the third variable, and the color of the bubble represents the fourth variable.

Here is an example of a bubble chart using size, color, and position of the bubble to represent different variables, as well as a name for each data point:

This bubble chart shows the weight, height, and gender data for a group of people along with their names. The x-axis represents the age of the people, the y-axis represents their weight, the size of the bubble represents their height, and the color of the bubble represents their gender.

### How-to build a bubble chart?

1. Navigate to Add New Chart screen

2. Configure and customize the chart to create the desired visualization.

### Bubble chart configuration:

A bubble chart can display up to five dimensions of information. The first three dimensions are represented by the position the bubbles on the x-axis and y-axis, and the name. The fourth dimension can be represented by the size of the bubbles, and the fifth dimension can be represented by the color of the bubbles.

1) The configuration shown illustrates how to map the data fields to generate a bubble chart. There are three mandatory fields : Bubble Name, X-Axes and Y-Axes. Optionally, you can use the "color" and "size" of the bubbles to represent two additional dimensions of the data.

2) To customize the appearance of an area chart, follow these steps:

1. Click on the "Customize" tab

2. Go to "Other" accordion to select the desired options

3. Select the desired customization options, such as bubble stroke, opacity, position, text formatting, bubble colors, and more

This allows you to tailor the appearance of the bubble chart to your specific needs and preferences. You can customize a variety of options to create a chart that effectively communicates your data and insights.

Bubble charts are often used to visualize the relationship between four or more different variables. They can be particularly useful for showing patterns and trends in the data, such as correlations or clusters.

There are a few useful tips to keep in mind when using bubble charts:

1. Make sure to clearly label the chart and include a descriptive title.

2. Use a clear and readable font for the labels and axis ticks to make it easier for readers to understand the chart.

3. Use a meaningful scale for the x-axis and y-axis to help readers understand the context of the data.

4. Use colors and patterns effectively to differentiate
