In this article, we will learn how to draw a bubble chart in tableau worksheet to do further operations. For this first look into two terms :

  • Tableau : Tableau is a powerful and fastest-growing data visualization tool used in the Business Intelligence Industry. It helps in simplifying raw data into a very easily understandable format.
  • Bubble Chart : A bubble chart is a type of chart that displays three dimensions of data. Each entity with its triplet (v1, v2, v3) of associated data is plotted as a disk that expresses two of the vi values through the disk’s xy location and the third through its size.

Dataset used in the given examples is Dataset.

For this we have to follow some steps :

  • Drag and drop the one sheet of the connected dataset.
  • Click on sheet1 to open the tableau worksheet.
