JMP 11 provided the ability to create an interactive Flash version of the Bubble Plot platform. Our customers wanted us to provide the same functionality using interactive HTML so they would be able to share their bubble plots with colleagues using iPads. They would no longer need to tell their colleagues to download and install a plugin to interact with our browser-based bubble plots. So, JMP 12 includes Interactive HTML Bubble Plots.
The Bubble Plot platform in JMP provides rich customizability and more user interaction than any report previously supported in interactive HTML reports. Our goal in JMP 12 was to provide as much of this functionality as possible while keeping the user interface familiar and easy to use on mobile devices.
In developing the Interactive HTML Bubble Plot, our approach was to:
Replicate the most important features of the desktop experience.
Replace user controls with more mobile-friendly controls.
Here's a side-by-side comparison of a desktop Bubble Plot platform and the interactive HTML version.

This is just one of many types of bubble plots you can create with JMP 12. To get a better sense of the extent of customizability and interaction available with the Interactive HTML Bubble Plot, we've prepared a gallery of samples at our website.
Please try these samples using your favorite desktop or mobile web browser and let us know what you think. Thanks.
