How do I create a bubble chart that is aligned in Tableau

0 votes

I want to make a chart with filled bubbles that are all aligned and have the same amount of space between them. Size is determined by the measure value. I tried making a conventional bubble chart but couldn't get it to align. Do you have any thoughts about how I might resolve this issue?

I can't figure out how to align the shapes in a bar chart. I'm having trouble aligning my bubble chart since it's so crowded.

I'd want it to resemble the one at the bottom of the linked image.

  1. Put your dimension in the column shelf
  2. Put your measure in the size shelf (marks)
  3. In the mark shelf, select Circle option

You can also adjust other settings, like enlarge the circle's size, add a label, etc.

You have to edit the bubble chart, changing the "Fit" option to "Standard" (instead of "Entire view"). Next, manually dragging the division between two bubble headers in order to fix the width, as shown in the image below.
