This solution extends the capabilities of ConceptDraw PRO v10.3.0 (or later) with templates, samples, and a library of vector stencils for drawing pie and donut charts.
A Pie Chart is a disk divided into sectors. The sector angle is proportional to the represented quantity. Pie charts effectively display proportions. In particular, if the intent is to compare the size of a slice with a whole pie, rather than comparing slices among them, pie charts are very illustrative. Pie Charts are used in statistics, business, and mass media for composition comparison (i.e. to visualize the percentage for the parts of one total).
The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Basic Pie Charts solution; they demonstrate a portion of the solution's capabilities and the professional results you can achieve.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw Solution Park. The Basic Pie Charts solution is available for all ConceptDraw PRO v10 users.
Example 1: Basic Donut Chart — Budgeted Appropriations
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Basic Pie Charts Library from the Pie Charts Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.
A donut (doughnut) chart is similar to a pie chart, but it gives the ability to support multiple statistics at once. In this simple case, the choice of donut chart vs pie chart was based on visual criteria only - leaving the center blank makes this chart lightweight.
Example 2: Basic Pie Chart — Sector Weightings
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Basic Pie Charts Library from the Basic Pie Charts Solution. An experienced user spent 15 minutes creating this sample.
This is a typical example of pie chart. It captures attention using a rich color palette. When using this approach, be aware of using too many categories. This can make your pie chart impossible to understand.
Example 3: Basic Pie Chart — Approximate Composition of the Air
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Basic Pie Charts Library from the Basic Pie Charts Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.
Using pie charts always leaves a free space on your page or slide. You can use this space to add illustrations or text labels provide your audience with additional information which may help your audience understand the subject.
