Altair® Panopticon


Donut Chart Settings

Donut Charts are a derivative of the pie chart and are used in the same manner for displaying contributions to a total.

Panopticon can produce standard Donut Charts in which the donut slice represents a numeric variable that is proportional to the total size of the donut. The color variable can represent either a category or another numeric variable.

Donut Charts can be flat, showing a single set of slices. They can also be hierarchical and display multiple levels of data in a variant called a Multilevel Donut Chart.

A recommended alternative to the Donut Chart is the Treemap, which can display a larger number of data points, and is easier to compare constituent data points.

The donut chart settings pane is displayed after clicking the Options  button.
