  • In ChartDirector, a bubble chart is just a scatter chart with variable size symbols.
  • In this chart, two scatter layers with variable size glass sphere symbols are shown.

  • This chart is the same as the previous chart, except semi-transparent colors are used, so you can see through the bubbles. This is useful if the bubbles can overlap extensively.

  • This chart uses solid spheres as bubbles.

  • A bubble chart using semi-transparent circular symbols.

  • In ChartDirector, bubbles are not limited to spheres or circles. Other shapes can also be used.
  • Furthermore, the horizontal and vertical dimensions can be scaled independently.

  • ChartDirector even supports using custom images as bubbles.
