How to Create a Radial Bubble Chart in Tableau

No comments
If you’re looking for something beyond the basic line chart in Tableau, this radial bubble chart might be exactly what you’re looking for. And the best part, it only takes 6 calculations and 8 steps. 

But be careful, this isn’t the easiest chart to read. Use it with caution and make sure you understand your audience.

A special thank you to Trea McElhone at The Data School for teaching me how to create this. I extended her work to do all of the calculations directly inside Tableau, which helps it be flexible for more use cases as I demonstrate.
