Ishtyaq Habib created an interactive bubble chart that visualizes corporate revenue and profit data in a peculiar manner. The picture he got in result can provide you with insights into the top 100 companies from the 2017 Forbes Global 2000 list by profit and revenue.

Well, that is another proof that the challenge of choosing the right chart type is topical.
