This topic describes the overview, examples, and deletion of an LBS bubble map.

Similar to a bubble map, an LBS bubble map is a map that uses the sizes of bubbles distributed across the map to reflect data. It provides multiple base maps for you to choose from, such as AMAP, Google Maps, and GeoQ. LBS bubble maps allow you to understand the distribution and values of metrics across countries and regions in an easy and visual way. For example, LBS bubble maps can display the passenger numbers across tourist attractions or the per capita incomes across regions.

An LBS bubble map is based on bubble sizes and geographical locations. Geographical locations are determined by Geo type dimensions such as the province. Bubble sizes are determined by measures such as the shipping cost and order number.



You can only select one dimension for the geographical locations and the dimension type must be Geo. For example, the area, province, and city fields. You can select a minimum of one and a maximum of five measures for bubble sizes.

For more information, see Detailed information for regions.

  5. On the Data tab page, select dimensions and measures.

    On the Dimensions list, locate the province field to the Geo Location section. On the Measures list, locate the order_amt and profit_amt fields and add them to the Bubble Size (Measures) section respectively.

  6. Click Update and the chart is updated.
  7. On the Style tab page, you can configure the title, layout, and data display formats.
