bubble chart

I want to create a bubble chart like my mock up I slapped together in paint, where the x and y axis are categorical variables and the size of the bubble is the measurment like number of products sold.  It looks like I can't do this with a scatter chart because I can only use a categorical variable on one axis.  Is there another way around this?

Re: bubble chart

Hello @careisin,

 

Dot Plot by MAQ Software  supports categorical values on Axis category I and Axis category II.

 

Please refer the below screenshots:

 

This is the vertical orientation of the visual - 

 

This is the horizontal orientation of the visual - 

 

 

The orientations are configurable from the format pane.

 

In the above example, categorical values have been inserted in Axis category I and Axis category II. Value field is used for the other axis. Bubble size is based on the numeric column inserted in 'Bubble size' field.

 

'Value' field is optional. As per your use case, you can skip inserting column in 'Value' field.

 

For any further queries or enhancement requests, please contact us at support@maqsoftware.com.

 

Thanks.

Re: bubble chart

Hi @careisin,

 

By my tests, we only could show the categorical variable on x axis.

 

You probably need to change to a different visualization or look at a custom visualization like Dot Plot by MAQ Software which may help you.
