1 Screenshot


Animate values over times by showing movement within a 2D space.



The animated bubble chart can be used to show how 2-4 measures changes over time. This method of visualizing changes over time was popularized by Hans Rosling in a famous TED talk from 2006 where he used it to show changes in global health and economics.

Data Requirement

The animated bubble chart can be used to visualize and animate any multi-variate dataset that contains snapshots of values taken at different timepoints. In order to make it work properly a data table with at least four columns is required:

  1. One column should identify the bubbles, for example, names of countries, people or objects.
  2. One column should contain a time point, for example years, or weeks.
  3. Two columns should contain measures for the country, person or object taken at different times.

For detailed information on data requirements, the available settings, and an example of how to set up the visualization, read the mod's community article.
