Question

How to make circles proportional with radius.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop 10.3.0
  • Windows 7
  • Excel

Answer

Instead of using the [Radius] field directly on the Size shelf, replace it with the calculation for the area of a circle:
PI() * [Radius]^2

 

Additional Information

Tableau determines the size of circles in the view based on area, not radius.
