Bubble Chart

ASP.NET MVC Bubble Chart Sample using CanvasJS

Here is an example for adding Interactive Bubble Charts into your ASP.NET MVC Application using CanvasJS. Bubble Chart allows you to visualize data in 3 dimensions. It is very much similar to Scatter Charts except that size of bubble represents another parameter. Out of the three parameters required (x, y, z) to be present in a data point, x & y determine the bubble’s position on X & Y Axis & z determines its size.

Please refer to this tutorial for step by step instruction of adding charts to your ASP.Net MVC Application. We recommend that you download the Sample Visual Studio Project and try it on your own to understand the API better.

var chart = new CanvasJS.Chart("chartContainer", {
.
.
data: [{
    type: "bubble",
    dataPoints: [
        { x:10, y: 6, z: 100 },
        { x:20, y: 14, z: 10 },
        { x:30, y: 8, z: 90 }
    ]
}]
.
.
}

You can further customize these charts to enable features like Zooming, Panning, Exporting, etc. To know more about the available features, please refer to our getting started section.
