Assume that you have read Dashboard overview and Basic dashboard operations. This section describes how to create a line chart. If you want to edit a dataset or create a dataset, see Create a dataset.

A geo bubble chart is a map of a country or an area that is attached with bubbles to represent the amount of data. You can use a geo bubble chart to graphically display metrics for each country or area and the distribution of these countries or areas. For example, you can show the traffic flow of tourists for each tourist attraction or show the per capita income for each area.

A geo bubble chart consists of locations and bubbles of different sizes. Locations are determined by a dimension such as the province field and the size of bubbles are determined by a measure such as shipping_cost and order_amt.


You can set up to one dimension and the dimension type must be geographic information, such as area, province, and city. In addition, the bubble size area can be set from one to five measures.

The following scenario uses the company_sales_record dataset.

Scenario: Compart the number of orders and the amount of profit for each province.

  2. Click Datasets to enter the Datasets page.

  4. Click the Geo Bubble icon and a geo bubble chart appears in the display area of a dashboard.
  5. On the Data tab, select the required dimensions and measures.
    On the Dimensions list, drag province to the Location (Dimension) area. On the Measures list, drag order_amt and profit_amt to the Bubble Size (Measures) area in turn as shown in the following figure.
    Note Ensure that you have changed the province field from the string type to the location type.

  6. Click Update to update the chart.
  7. On the Style tab, you can change some items such as the title, layout, and legend of a chart.
  8. Click Save to save the dashboard.
