Basic Examples  (2)

Create a bubble chart of the populations for the countries in South America:

Create charts with multiple sets of data:

Scope  (24)

Data and Wrappers  (10)

Specify entities and values as separate lists:

Use QuantityArray for the values:

Use an entity property directly with entities:

Specify entities and values together:

Items in each set of data are colored the same:

Nonpositive data is taken to be missing:

The data may include units:

Use wrappers at any level in the data:

Wrappers can be nested:

Override the default tooltips:

Use any object in the tooltip:

Styling and Appearance  (7)

Use an explicit list of styles for the groups of bubbles:

Use any gradient or indexed color schemes from ColorData:

ChartBaseStyle can be used to set an initial style for all chart elements:

Style can be used to override styles:

Use any graphic for pictorial bubbles:

Use built-in programmatically generated bubbles:

Use a theme with a simple background map:

Use a theme with a high contrast color scheme and bright bubbles:

Labeling and Legending  (7)

Use Labeled to add a label to a bubble:

Use symbolic positions for label placement:

Use Placed to control the positioning of labels, using the same positions as for Labeled:

Use Callout to add a label to a bar:

Change the appearance of the callout:

Automatically position callouts:

Use legends to identify different sets of bubbles:

Options  (15)

BubbleScale  (2)

By default, the area of a bubble is proportional to the value:

Compare area scale to diameter scale:

BubbleSizes  (1)

Change the size range of the bubbles:

ChartBaseStyle  (1)

Use ChartBaseStyle to style all bubbles:

ChartBaseStyle combines with ChartStyle:

ChartElementFunction  (2)

Get a list of built-in settings for ChartElementFunction:

For more settings, use Palettes Chart Element Schemes:

ChartElements  (1)

Create a pictorial chart based on any Graphics object:



ChartStyle  (3)

Use ChartStyle to set the style:

Give a list of styles:

Use gradient colors from ColorData:

Use indexed colors from ColorData:

Styles are used cyclically:

ColorFunction  (2)

Color by longitude coordinate value:

Use ColorFunctionScaling->False to get unscaled height values:

ColorFunction overrides styles in ChartStyle:

Use ColorFunction to combine different style effects:

GeoBackground  (1)

Use the default background for map region and background:

Draw a relief map background for the map:

GeoProjection  (1)

PlotTheme  (1)

Use a theme with bright colors:

Use a satellite map for the background:

Applications  (2)

Show the magnitudes of the last earthquakes around 1000 km from Mexico City during the last 2 years:

Show the farm land area of each US state as a bubble of a size proportional to the land area:

Properties & Relations  (9)

Use BubbleChart to show bubbles for general data:

Use GeoRegionValuePlot to show values with colored regions:

Use GeoGraphValuePlot to show the values on geographic networks:

Use GeoHistogram to aggregate locations into bins:

Use GeoSmoothHistogram to generate smooth densities from locations:

Use GeoListPlot for individual locations:

Use GeoVectorPlot and GeoStreamPlot for vector fields:

Draw contours on a map with GeoContourPlot:

Smoothly shade a map using color with GeoDensityPlot:
