Bubble charts encode data in the area of circles. Although less perceptually-accurate than bar charts, they can pack hundreds of values into a small space. Implementation based on work by Jeff Heer. Data shows the Flare class hierarchy, also courtesy Jeff Heer.

Two things I am trying to add and could use some advice on where to start,
Would love to be able to zoom in and explore data more.
2nd, I'm trying to "pop" and bubble on a mouse click but don't know how to update that chart.
Any suggestions would be great.

question?

index.html line 28 d3.json("flare.json", function(error, root) {

as the path to the file - flare.json
if it is in the D: \ Example \
file index.html
is folder D: \ Example \
with respect for Alex

I've created an example of the Bubble Chart that uses a transparent, floating div to expose the label of the bubble rather than the default browser tooltip (which I disabled using pointer-events=none). I think this makes for a more immediate and smoother experience. Enjoy!

Example here: http://bl.ocks.org/mmattozzi/7018021
